Tower 42 (aka NatWest Tower), London, England

Really getting into this Long Exposure photography, I find myself looking out the window most days seeing if the conditions are ideal and also constantly looking at weather forecasts too. For this image I checked the weather the day before and the cloud cover was 0% - 1% which was rubbish for LE work. The next morning the weather forecase was right but then about an hour after getting up it started clouding over which were moving fast with odd patches of blue sky, this is great for LE work. So off I went into London and I also arranged a meet up with fellow photographer and friend Richard Hurst. It was great to meat Rich and chat, its always great to meet new photographers and talk about each others experiences. So we headed on down to the Gherkin and Lloyds building first and then headed over to Tower 42 where I got this image. This just proves that the weather forecast is not always right and how the conditions can and do change, you sometimes have to act on the opportunity when the weather presents itself to you.
