London Skyline And Canary Wharf By Night

London Skyline And Canary Wharf By Night

I took another trip to London yesterday to follow on from where we left off with the Millennium bridge series a couple of weeks ago.  This time I concentrated on Canary Wharf as I have wanted to capture this area of London by night for a while now.

It was VERY cold however I was on the shoot for about 5 hours.  I have never been to Canary Wharf before and so it was literally the case of wondering around and stumbling across scenes.  I primarily used my 8mm Fisheye lens however some shots were taken using my 14mm Canon L lens.  All shots are bracketed and ranging from 2 to 25 seconds at F16, ISO100.

I highly recommend a visit to the area if you like the straight lines and typical cityscape photo, be aware however that you do get approached by pretty much every security guard and policeman whilst there given the sensative nature of the area at the moment!

As a side note, the cold did present me with 2 issues;

I couldn’t feel my limbs and so not only did I have issues controlling the camera but I also spent a fortune on Starbucks coffees.

Having wrapped up in a hoodie, beanie and scarf around my face so that only my eyes were visible, I probably didn’t help the whole security situation as I looked like either a homeless person or someone looking to cause start a riot (smiling inanely at the police and security only seemed to deepen their suspicions of me for some reason!)
