It was a cold and very wet mid-spring night in London when, against my best judgement, I decided to head out to test a new lens I had just added to my inventory. Boys with toys, hey… After getting soaked for a number of hours waiting for the downpour to subside I decided to call it a day (or night, more suitably) and head back. As I was crossing Westminster bridge the rain suddenly stopped and I noticed the London Eye and County Hall dressed in their best colors. 25 seconds later I had this shot.
