British Museum – Great Court

An iconic view from the second floor of the southern wing of the British Museum. It’s home to one of the largest collections of works of human history, art and culture. This central quadrangle has become Queen Elizabeth II Great Court and was opened in 2000. The incredible looking glass and steel roof has kept the museum high on my list of locations in London.

Since first seeing this interior online, I’ve wanted to photograph it. On a recent trip to London I didn’t bring a DSLR camera and my very wide angle lens. Just my travel compact camera. Its lens wasn’t wide enough to fully capture this view. I took dozens of different photos to stitch them into a panoramic photograph later. This is the best pano I was able to record. Surprisingly it came from my iPhone 6 using it’s built in pano mode.
