Millennium Bridge & St. Paul’s Cathedral

Certainly the dome at least of St. Paul’s Cathedral is much easier to photograph from far away. A few days ago I was complaining about how difficult it was to fit the whole cathedral into one image. The picture above gives a much better impression of its size and height. It also shows the new Millennium Bridge in a much clearly light than my previous image of the bridge. Using the diagonal lead-in from the top left corner is my attempt to draw your eye along the bridge to the focal point at the end, i.e. the cathedral. I was quite surprised at how many cranes were on the skyline behind the cathedral. In this picture they almost look like they are on the bridge or on the banks of the River Thames, but from what I could see they were much further away than they look.
