London's Parliament Lights

Officially, the Clock Tower's bell is called the Great Bell though it is better known by the name 'Big Ben'. The bell is named af Sir Benjamin Hall, First Commissioner for Works 1855-1858. The name 'Big Ben' is often associated with the Clock Tower and the Great Clock as well as the Great Bell. It was to the Great Bell that the name originally was given. (UK Parliament)

 

I just returned from my trip to the United Kingdom. I caught this long exposure shot near the Westminster Bridge.
