16 Photographs of London Lights at Night

With the skies turning black so early these days, most of us walk home in the under the glow of street lights and neon signs. Here’s a handful of Winter night shots from the Flickr pool. They make me want to sit next to the fire place in a cosy pub with good company and a tasty December drink!

When the Light Fades into Night

When the night falls on the city, it’s transformed into another world with glimmering reflections swimming in the Thames, lights dotting the skyline against a black backdrop like low hanging stars, and everything waiting in a peaceful, quiet, near-emptiness for morning.

There have been some stunning night shots added to the Flickr pool lately so today is the day I share them with you.
