Cloud City

On Friday I went to St Paul’s Cathedral. I don’t go too often, but enjoy it when I do. I’ve also been meaning to go ever since I got my 14mm at the start of the year, but failed to take that camera with me on this trip so will have to do that some other time.

I did take my Sony NEX-7 with me and a couple of ND filters though, so was able to mount the camera on the rail at the top with a Gorillapod and take a nice long exposure using the stacked filters.

The clouds were nice at the start of the day, but had slowed down a lot by the time I took this shot. As a result there isn’t quite as much movement as I wanted there to be, even though the exposure is around 3 minutes 45 seconds.

It was pretty crowded up there, so I appreciate all the visitors who worked their way around me while I stood there seemingly doing nothing.
