Congrats on your ribbon for this highly atmospheric shot. With stormier clouds it would remind one of a Turner or a Constable.

Wow, just like Reudi. . .after looking at your profile, it is aMAZING that this is only your first ribbon! You have stunning photos in your portfolio -- this certainly being one of them! It's a shame there can't be 3 blues because all 3 of the ribbon winners deserve to be 1st place!

Congratulations on this breathtaking photo!

Like a few other commenters this is such a beautiful nostalgic shot, I used to drive that route almost daily and saw this scene but without the beautiful light. Great capture and thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Congrats on the ribbon!

Thanks. If you look closely you'll see Big Ben is indicating it's 9.30...and at this time of the year that could only be morning!

I miss this view. lovely image, superb light and exposure.

London's burning! London's burning!

All across the town, all across the night
Everybody's driving with full headlights
Black or white turn it on, face the new religion
Everybody's sitting 'round watching television!

London's burning with boredom now
London's burning dial 99999

I'm up and down the Westway, in an' out the lights
What a great traffic system - it's so bright
I can't think of a better way to spend the night
Then speeding around underneath the yellow lights

London's burning with boredom now
London's burning dial 99999

Now I'm in the subway and I'm looking for the flat
This one leads to this block, this one leads to that
The wind howls through the empty blocks looking for a home
I run through the empty stone because I'm all alone

London's burning with boredom now...

Nice capture...

This is outstanding and the light really is at a nice angle. I'm an ex-Londoner and spent many a day cycling across that bridge. Now what I am thinking is that the light is from a more westerly direction than from the east. West is evening and east is morning, as far as I remember. It looks like morning to me yet the light is telling me evening. Tell me I'm wrong. Perhaps we'll not quibble about the time of day and just stick with the overall effect? OK, then 9.
