London St. Pauls framed by silver birch trees outside Tate Modern

London St. Pauls framed by silver birch trees outside Tate Modern


I am so captivated by this image, I am actually writing this nearly 3 years after it was taken, and I still walk past it at night and feel compelled to capture it, despite the fact that I already have such a body of work dedicated to it. There is something so special about that dome, the way it captures light. The way it sits in between modern London, after surviving a wars, bombing raids and the elements for all these years.

I love this part of London so much, I guess that is why its easy for me to take images of, because they come from the soul! :)

Absolutely superb - I stay just round the corner from the Tate whenever I'm in London. This is on my to do list for the next visit!

I am really amazed how well you have mastered the 5400 for night exposures; these are technically as well as artistically strong. Well done – keep sharing.
