This image combines two themes that have featured (and will continue to do so) on this blog recently – St Paul’s cathedral and twinkling lights.

(Click on image for larger version.)

This view was taken from the Southbank. I  like this angle, because of the way that the towers and the dome interact. I must visit again and get closer to the cathedral to understand how it is floodlit.

I was tempted to tone down (or remove) the bright red light in the lower left of the photo. It seemed to be a distraction from the subject (i.e. St Paul’s). But, then I thought that the shot worked because ti showed the cathedral in its context. And it would be wrong to remove part of that environment. Anyway, St Paul’s can stand up to the minor distraction of a single red light!

(Other, similar images can be found on my Flickr site – if you’re interested.)
