House of Parliament in London

Daily photo – House of Parliament in London

HDR photo of House of Parliament in London taken from Westminster Bridge.

Midday light is almost never good for taking nice landscape/travel images because it’s often harsh resulting in boring photos. However, sometimes it can be quite nice in fact. In the above HDR photo of House of Parliament in London there were a lot of clouds in the sky but the sky wasn’t completely covered with them. This resulted in a few nice light patches here and there and I think that the sky also looks interesting enough. One of those light patches appeared on House of Parliament making it really stand out from the scene.
