London is a great city, and when it comes to the weather it's seemingly always sunny and raining at the same time. Walking towards the Tower Bridge this particular morning I thought really encompassed just that sentiment with the raindrops sitting on the railings from a storm that had just passed and the skies parting clouds making way for the sun to shine through, if only for a brief amount of time.

Even on a rainey day and low light conditions - the famouse bridge always shown with it's grandeur.
Great POV to enhance it's hight, and the blue lamp-posts and big chains are notable in good contrast.
Nice golden crown atop.

I agree with you about the weather.. also,the most dramatic sky I have seen in the world.. sometimes part of the sky is so dark, and the other part is full of sun shine..great photo opportunity.. but I always has no camera:-D..
Beautifully composed image.. I have never been on the bridge.. I thought it was a view in Europe.very beautiful indeed. Love the blue colour,,,

I like your composition in vertical format and also your well chosen viewpoint. You have perfectly placed the street lights in front of tower bridge structures without disturbing it.. I like it. Have a nice weekend.

Great idea about including the street lamps to lead the eye towards the bridge and tower. Typical London weather that gives an interesting sky.
I would have gone for a tighter crop though, see in my little workshop what I mean.
have a great weekend

Very unique POV on this fine structure, great idea to include the blue lamppost for perspective and depth.
The sky also suits perfectly with your title, I know that rain shine you mention, we get it Ireland (when we are lucky and its not just raining!!). Great colours and tones in the sky.

Somebody said an architecture is a solid music. If it's true, so this is the wonderful sounds of the English traditions. Fine vertical format, excellent details.
Have a great Friday!
