Download: St Paul’s Cathedral at Night
With an idea to take some shots of St Paul’s in daylight, I set off without my tripod. By the time I got there, the sun has already sank behind the horizon and darkness has already overtaken. Street lights are struggling to shine the pathways for the pedestrians.
Situation was challenging because of the lack of tripod due to the nature of night photos which require long exposure time. I was determined to make the most out of what I’ve got. Exploration was begun as I kept walking up and down the “Millennium bridge“.
While making this shot, I placed the camera onto the floor of the bridge so that the camera stays as still as possible for this 15 seconds exposure shot.

At about 11:00pm, everything around Piccadilly Circuis was covered in thick snow I was waiting for. The statue of a cupid boy with spreading wings in the photo is known as The Angel of Christian Charity. It is popularly known as Eros, named after the mythical Greek god of love.
The neon signs from across the street casted a good lighting on Eros. Also, it’s great to see the snow-fall in action. I used the thick snow on the switchboard as a foreground to block the other elements around Piccadilly Circuis and to demonstrate the thickness of the snow.
