Blue Hour at St Paul's Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge, London, England - The cathedral, built in the 17th century, sits on Ludgate Hill at the highest point of the City of London. It was designed by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London in 1666. The fire, which began at the bakery of Thomas Farriner on Pudding Lane, consumed an estimated 13,200 houses and 87 parish churches. Later on, the cathedral famously survived The Blitz (an abbreviation of Blitzkrieg) during the Second World War in 1940 and 1941 despite being struck by bombs by the Luftwaffe. I took this photograph about an hour before sunrise on the south bank of the River Thames. If you hope to get a clean shot straight down the middle of the footbridge you need to get there early, it's packed at night and tends to wobble if you're on the bridge itself.
