A View from the London Eye

If you ever find yourself as a tourist in London, you must surely take a ride on the London Eye. We were fortunate to take our ride right at sunset. It was a gorgeous time of day, but it did make it difficult to shoot anything facing west. Since the ride is constantly moving, HDR shots can be difficult. Looking out across the Thames was especially breathtaking, with many of the historic London sites in easy view. In this image, you can see Westminster Palace, and just behind it to the right, Westminster Abbey.

The bubble you ride in can distort the image slightly, plus the reflections inside are horrific. Then add everyone else wanting to take the same picture from the same spot inside this bubble and it makes for a fun time.
