Dawn breaks above City Hall illuminating The Thames and beautifully backlighting Tower Bridge in shades of orange and purple.
The view of the Grand Canal from the Accademia Bridge showing the church of Santa Maria della Salute is one of the finest that Venice has to offer. This five minute exposure, taken at dawn during an ‘acqua alta’ in December captures the calm water before the sun rises and ‘il Canalazzo’ becomes the main artery of the city.

Stunning Cathedral, historic city.
Venice is synonymous with her beautiful canals and the gondolas that parade along them every day. This famous view of San Giorgio Maggiore is taken just outside the entrance to St Marks Square. The low light in this scene enhance the colours in the water and the magical atmosphere of the city.
Shot from the Golden Jubilee footbridge that runs alongside Hungerford Bridge. To the right, Westminster sits on the Thames over-shadowed by the impressive London Eye on the South Bank. Taken at 6.47am just before dawn broke, this long exposure captures a moment of serenity before the city awakens.
I patiently waited for two trains to meet head-to-head on converging lines to capture this aerial view of London Bridge taken from the Shard looking down on Borough Market and Southwark Cathedral. When you see the Capital from an overhead location such as this, it really illustrates the close proximity of the almost chaotic random street layout. With so many unique locations to capture this dynamically evolving city, it’s true that London really specialises in hiding the best of itself. Knowing I only had one opportunity to get the perfect shot I was delighted with end result.
Greenwich Naval College and Park with the towering Canary Wharf beyond.
Structure of the world famous bridge linking Manhattan with Brooklyn in New York, USA.
The transformation of London's Battersea Power Station has been an undertaking of monumental proportions. Industrial cranes reach into the sky like creatures from War of The Worlds as the conversion of this historic building tries to remain sympathetic to its heritage. Meanwhile the relentless flow of trains coming in and out of Victoria Station continues unabated.
As nightfall descends over Canary Wharf, the low tide view from Surrey Quays reveals evidence of the moorings of old Docklands. It’s true to say that London does very well at hiding the best of itself... you just need to know where to look.
