London at night

A few days ago I posted several pictures of Canterbury(All Hallows’ Eve in Canterbury) from a trip we took to the UK and France back in 2005.  I plan to show you several of the stops we made while on that journey.

This set of photos was taken late one night in London.  We rented a house in Eastbourne down on the southern coast.  It was cheaper and about an hour by train to London.  I had been to London and Paris many times but Todd and his brother had never been before.  So, I insisted that we visit Paris for a few days so that they could get a feel for the difference between the two cities.

We had booked the first Eurostar of the day to Paris.  I can’t remember exactly what time it left but it was too early for us to arrive from Eastborne prior to the departure that morning.  We had the bright idea that we would take the last train into London and walk from that station(I can’t remember which one.) to Warterloo Station where the Eurostar departs for Paris.

It was an exhausting night.  Nonetheless, it was a fantastic walk through the heart of London.  Here are a few of the photos that I was able to capture while on that walk.

  1. Hey, thanks for sharing these pictures – I’m an English girl born and bred and have visited London many times and these have reminded me how gorgeous the city is, especially at night!

  2. These are brilliant…. as a previous comment noted, they are gifts. Someday I will get to the UK. In the meantime, I will enjoy your pics….

  3. I really like the ‘colour tinting/highlighting’ you did on them – it really brings out particular features really well. My favourite would have to be the houses of parliament ‘lights’.

  4. Your England photographs have inspired me to search out my own. I’ve credited you with a link on my page. Thanks for some wonderful London memories!

  5. Your work is phenomenal! Etched in Stone, Big Ben and Sleepy Town are my favorites from this set. Sleepy Town has such a spooky feel, too! I just love it! You have some amazing skills. 🙂

  6. I live in London and havent got any photos as nice as these.
    Keep up the good work
    When your next over lets take some together I get good access to London’s roofs

  7. we recently saw some of London’s most famous landmarks lit up in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness (#wearitpink). Something tells me you would have loved that ^_^

  8. Beautiful! I was just doing the same thing tonight, I was strolling along the seine this evening taking pics of the beautiful glittery paris at night.
