PWC

This is going to be the final image I’ll post from those I made on my London photo-walk. I have a few images from a recent trip to Edinburgh waiting in the wings and, on Thursday, I’m off to Italy for a week so I expect I’ll have a few images to show from that trip.

This one was taken in front of the Price Waterhouse Coopers building on London’s South Bank, near Tower Bridge. The building’s floor plan is shaped a bit like a ‘C’ and, in the gap between the two arms of the ‘C’ has been planted a small grove of Silver Birch trees. When I was there, they were strongly lit from one side whilst the surrounding walls were in deep shadow, making for a somewhat surreal scene. I took a few shots, of which, this is one of my favourites.

    Beautiful dark, urban image. I love the lit, evenly spaced trees. The ordered aspect of that added piece of nature is mirrored in the lights and window frames fighting their way out of the shadows of the building

    I like this shot it’s somewhat compulsive.

    Your image does have a strikingly surreal aspect… this could be day or night, and I love the delicate dendritic patterns of nature found amid the concrete and steel of the city. Fantastic find and beautiful image Adrian!

    Always did like the the effect of brilliantly lit subjects against dark backgrounds and this your ultimate shot is quite magnificent.

    Chiaroscuro at its best. Those trees are floating….
