Christmas Lights in Regent Street, London (photo taken from Piccadilly Circus)

"The next day I did a wiser choice for the timing: I went to Piccadilly Circus earlier in the afternoon, at about 3:30. I had all the time to set up my camera’s position and settings. Things didn’t look too good for the shot, though, the sky was completely covered by dark clouds. I started to have a bad feeling about the situation, and a few minutes later, it started to rain. The first drops started to fall down at just before the perfect time for the shot, but I had to take cover. My lens and camera were getting wet. I was quite down because I was about to lose the perfect shot I was waiting for, but, fortunately, it stopped raining. Just after I got back into position, incredibly, a portion of the sky I had in my frame cleared out, revealing a beautiful blue hue. That’s when I took THE picture. When I looked at the result in my camera’s small LCD, I was finally satisfied."
