Tower Bridge and the River Thames

The Story Behind the Image - Tower Bridge and the River Thames

Historic Tower Bridge and the River Thames, illuminated as night falls on London. This photo was taken from just outside the Tower of London on the north bank of the Thames.

I arrived long before sunset, hoping to catch the moment just before night fell, with the bridge illuminations highlighting the towers and walkway, and yet with blue still in the evening sky.

I had to use a tripod for this photo obviously, which is not the easiest thing to carry on the London underground!
