During London's Switched On event the London Eye was left on overnight and I managed to bag this shot.

There's quite a few different light sources. You've got the fairy lights on the trees. The trees are yellow since they're lit by the sodium vapour lights behind me. The London Eye itself is lit pink and down this path, which is wet and reflecting the blue fairy lights, is an enclosure (it's glowing pink follow the path between the trees, see note) that houses the anchor points for the support cables of the Eye where I took this photo. They placed all sorts of words inside such as "Love" (which I photographed), "Valentine", "Be Mine", etc, etc in celebration of St. Valentine's Day. All these lights combined together make up this bright and colourful shot that was taken at around 3 in the morning!
