Big Ben Dawn: One a Day 2013

Big Ben Dawn:

Today I return to one of my favourite subjects; Big Ben or as it's now being called Elizabeth Tower. It was renamed in 2012 to commemorate Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the Throne of Great Britain.

At 5.00am London is still busy with people coming out of clubs and early morning workers either making their way home or going to work. On this drizzly morning all seemed calm in the city of London on Westminster Bridge. 

I love the light in the sky and the ghost-like colour trails of light from cars and buses zooming past in this picture. There's a strange quality with the reflected light from the wet road and pavements too.  

Big Ben Dawn.
Camera: Nikon D700. 6 seconds, f/32, ISO 200, 52mm.
