Shepherd's Delight

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/30, Aperture: f/4.5,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, Focal length: 33mm,
Captured: 28 October 2005, 5:45pm,

Firstly, it looks like Wags' cyst is benign. The vet's not 100% certain but they are pretty sure. So that's good news.

Onto today's pic. This is the cylindrical dome type thing on top of Olympia (the exhibition centre in London). I was walking over the footbridge in Kensington Olympia railway station and took a different shot of the dome, with a plane flying overhead. It wasn't great so I didn't shoot any more. Then I went to wait for my train and sat down in a covered area. When I emerged I noticed the sky looked a lot better so I took a couple of shots from the platform before my train arrived.

This is one of those shots. Obviously I've exposed it purely for the sky. I quite like the way the lights inside Olympia shine through, even when the whole rest of the building is completely silhouetted.

Actually, looking back at this shot I think I've gone a bit overboard with it. Still... It's late. I felt like I ought to post something. That's my excuse anyway.

Wow. Very nice indeed...

I think it's excellent, but then I love sky shots and silhouettes! As you say the lights from the Olympia in the midst of the silhouette really make it stand out.

Striking image. really striking.... if I was to give into my jealousy I'd have to add, in an athena kind of way!

Very nice mate. I also like the yellow lights shining through the windows, looks rather sassy.

The greenish lighting coming through from the windows creates an eery look with the red sky.
