It was a long morning for us, but we began our walk to capture London at 3:30 am, when the capital of England was still asleep. This photo was taken six hours later, when we completed our “circle” at St Paul’s Cathedral and Millennium Bridge.
Exhausted, but still in the best of moods after photographing London, we sat on a bench on the bank of the Thames and enjoyed the moment. It was the beautiful moment when the sun rose from behind the building on the left. There weren’t any pedestrians yet, so everything seemed so peaceful… For a moment, I realised that this would be a great composition, to capture The Shard under the Millennium Bridge.
Unbeknownst to us, we were following the famous “Quins walk” in a big part of our route, to capture the greatest London landmarks. All I regret is that this morning couldn’t have lasted longer!
