Just came back from a seven days trip in London with the weather conditions to were good.Luckily the weather was good with no rain but lots of clouds.
The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. Also known as the Millennium Wheel,its official name was originally the British Airways London Eye, then the Merlin Entertainments London Eye, and since January 2011, the EDF Energy London Eye.
The entire structure is 135 metres (443 ft) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 120 metres (394 ft). It is currently Europe's tallest Ferris wheel,the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over 3.5 million visitors annually,and has made many appearances in popular culture.
When erected in 1999 it was the world's tallest Ferris wheel, until surpassed first by the 160 m (520 ft) Star of Nanchang in 2006 followed by the 165 m (541 ft) Singapore Flyer in 2008 and lastly the 168 m (551 ft) High Roller in 2014. Supported by an A-frame on one side only, unlike the taller Nanchang and Singapore wheels, the Eye is described by its operators as "the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel".It offered the highest public viewing point in the city until it was superseded by the 245-metre (804 ft) observation deck on the 72nd floor of The Shard, which opened to the public on 1 February 2013.
The London Eye adjoins the western end of Jubilee Gardens (previously the site of the former Dome of Discovery), on the South Bank of the River Thames between Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge, in the London Borough of Lambeth.

αν και δεν έχω πάει ποτέ εκεί,έχω δει πολλές φωτογραφίες απ το London Eye,
πρέπει να είναι πολύ ενδιαφέρον,
πολύ ωραία και η φωτογραφία σου,ο φωτισμός είναι εντυπωσιακός!
Τώρα καταλαβαίνω γιατι δεν μπορούσα να σε βρω,όταν πριν λίγες μέρες σου τηλεφώνησα:)

Bonjour, cher Danos,
La couleur bleue dominante dans un ciel flamboyant est de toute beauté.
Une image fort bien présentée et appréciée.

We his neighbours today on TE.
Blue London with a lovely big wheel as eye on the capital of England
Also a wonderful reflections view along the river.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
kato (11630) 2014-04-10 4:26
You're capturing well rhis spectacle by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see giant Ferris wheel and buildings which was illuminated by the blue light in blue hour. It's goos at contrast with the sky dyed to setting sun. And, the blue color projected to river Thames draws out a good impact.
ikeharel (69941) 2014-04-10 8:21
Stunning blue tone prevailing, Danos, with a strong saturated texture. That created a special view across the river.
Good terchnical skill presented. Like it a lot.
Kielia (24077) 2014-04-10 8:45
a fantastic image! Excellent photo work, you have chosen an outstanding POV to capture this spectacular view. The management of the light is very good. The image almost looks like graphic artwork. My compliments!

Attractive colors of blue, a dark, eye-catching and pleasant

συμπέρανα ότι έλειπες σε κάποιο ταξίδι μα ο προορισμός είναι έκπληξη. Θα περιμένω με μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον τις φωτογραφίες σου από το Λονδίνο. Η "εισαγωγική" φωτογραφία είναι συναρπαστική. Εκτός από μια όμορφη περιγραφή του χαρακτηριστικού τοπίου, μας προσφέρει μεγάλη οπτική απόλαυση με τα έντονα και λαμπερά χρώματα σε έναν σπάνιο και ακαταμάχητο συνδυασμό. Μου αρέσει πολύ ο πρωταγωνιστικός ρόλος που έδωσες στις αντανακλάσεις με το στενό καδράρισμα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
tedesse (25135) 2014-04-10 12:34
Wonderful night picture.
Beautiful colors and excellent sharpness, interesting note.
Noel_Byrne (30546) 2014-04-10 13:10
What an unusual and unique vision of this modern icon, and to capture these intense blues of all the buildings against the blood red sky makes a brilliant image. The sky is full of activity and menace, this could be a scene from a movie. Beautiful moment perfectly caught.
All the best

fantastic electric blue lighting up the night! I wish I were there to enjoy the color!:))
Nice capture and a great view.
Royaldevon (37999) 2014-04-10 14:00
London is great city to visit when the weather is good!
I have seen many shots of the London Eye, but never one quite like this! It makes a stunning focal image when captured at night. I like how the artificial blue lights make an extremely attractive lead, right along the bank of the Thames, to the focal wheel.
My warm regards,
nikkitta (17066) 2014-04-10 15:59
Was waiting your quite new captures of London and this is quite eye catching, composition, colors and reflections with the redish sky at the back
Like the use of low speed, water is that way, like a mirrow
Greetings and congrats
What next, Millenium Bridge?
ChrisJ (112461) 2014-04-10 16:11
Ferris wheels seem to have taken off in popularity all over the world after a lull in 80's and 90's. There is even one in Izmit! And another in Brisbane. This brings back memories when I visited in August last year. I was back at the Tower Bridge by blue hour so missed nocturnal shots around Westminster. Tfs!
pierrefonds (65336) 2014-04-10 16:25
The distance to the buildings is giving depth to the composition. Using a slow shutter speed and probably a tripod is alloweing me to see the détails, the colors of the London Eye and of the building. It also has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
jcpix (13914) 2014-04-10 19:31
I wondered where you had disappeared to...and now we know. :) What a wonderfully moody and colorful nocturnal shot of this iconic attraction in London. You were blessed with an incredible sky to compliment this scene along the Thames, and under the cover of darkness has brought out a much more intriguing result of the Eye. The dual colored scheme is all that's needed to enhance the already enticing visual. Wonderful result! Enjoy the new day. All the best, glad to have you back.
jmdias (63504) 2014-04-11 1:43
amazing the colors of lights here, the reds of the sky and the blue of the structures created by men are fantastic in your compo. a very beautiful work. TFS.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-04-11 6:57
colori quasi psichedelici per una Londra notturna ripresa a mamo libera nel suo aspetto più moderno con la famosa ruota panoramica. La composizione è piuttosto piacevole e colpisce soprattuttop la contrapposizione tra i colori azzurri delegli edifici lungo il Tamigi con il colore rosso del cielo, un effetto che ritengo frutto essenzialmente della diversa temperatura di colore ma che appare piuttosto piacevole per creare un particolare effetto compositivo.
Ciao e buona giornata
Silvio1953 (140991) 2014-04-11 8:43
Ciao Danos, fascinating nocturne shoot with fantastic wheel, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
boa (7375) 2014-04-11 10:22
the intense blue light is very eye-catching and effectful. I have seen many shots of London eye but not with light like this. Nice composition and a good contribution to TE, tfs!
Have a nice weekend/
adramad (44926) 2014-04-11 11:47
A very striking image with these colors so vivid, the intensity of the blue and the red sky as create an image of great originality, big wheel looks splendid at night.
Very well managed the brightness and sharpness.
Have a happy weekend.

Δάνο, καλωσόρισες...η απουσία σου πέρα απο αισθητή...και φυσικά η φωτογραφία σου ειναι μεγαλειώδης για την νυχτερινή έκδοση της αλλά και για τήν επιλογή του θέματος!
Η αντίθεση και η αντανάκλαση εντυπωσιάζουν!!

mcmtanyel (21810) 2014-04-11 16:54
A night photographed that tried out your camera's limits but came out very nice. I don't think I have seen the London Eye illuminated in LED blue before, very well done!

WOW - What vibrant colours I love the blue against the rustic sky - amazing.
Did you go on the London Eye...? I was too scared I don't handle the heights too well.
Great night time mage - well done.
delpeoples (57278) 2014-04-12 6:25
Kalimera dear Danos
This skyline is unmistakable. So attractive, and beautifully exposed. I love the blue tones and how the ripples on the water have been accentuated.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
Tigerlily (3379) 2014-04-12 7:16
Wonderful shot, beautiful light.. the great view that I can never see.. I have to go home when it's getting later.:-D Yes, you were very lucky with the weather... love the sky.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-04-13 1:05
This a marvelous shot of the well lit London eye. I like the blue wheel standing out in contrast to the dusk colours of the sky. The reflected blue colours in the river is attractive as well. Nice shot with vivid colours and excellent clarity. Thanks for sharing.
geoant68 (331) 2014-04-13 22:15
εντυπωσιακή βραδυνή φωτογραφία από το London eye,που αν και έχω δει δεκάδες φωτογραφίες απ' αυτό αυτή είναι πράγματι πολύ διαφορετική.Ο συνδιασμός του μπλε φωτος με το χρώμα τ' ουρανού την κάνει μοναδική,
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-04-14 7:36
interesting colors and very unusual light make this picture eye catching. The blue reflection on the buildings, London eye and the water adds very much to the image. For a contrast the sky got burgundy tones. Very different than other picture of the same place - well done!
Thanks for sharing and all the best
fabbs99 (17133) 2014-04-14 23:58
Classic shot of the Ferris wheel at night with great clarity and colors.Very well done.TFS.
amaryllis (36837) 2014-04-16 1:42
Cet endroit de Londres la nuit est sublime et ton cadrage est excellent pour nous permettre d'en apprécier une bonne partie
Merci de ce partage
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-04-17 6:33
I like this capture of the London Eye and the reflection on the water. Good nocturnal shot with amazing colors. Very well done, tfs.
The High Roller, Las Vegas newest ride, is now open for business and at 550 feet it is taller than the Eye.
fabianoleite (10887) 2014-04-18 11:43
Excellent work with the blue lights, highlighting the shapes created by such çights, especially the wheel, which was magnificent. Congratulations!
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2014-04-19 4:19
A beautiful blue world with an interesting brown background... A very well composed shot where you managed the light superbly. Excellent one. TFS.
gervaso (13011) 2014-04-24 9:38
The blue lights are really interesting and make the picture much more attractive! Very good night shot! Great composition!
tatadalou (7459) 2014-04-25 13:25
Amazing blue-orange colours that form an uncommon contrast for a city shot. You managed a nice well balanced light management.
fotka (4337) 2014-04-29 5:25
Beautiful landmark of London in the blue color illumination. The color nicely reflected on the water. Great night shot with an excellent quality.
Gigidusud (20825) 2014-05-01 12:08
I was here two days ago! I loved this place! Great capture to the ferris Wheel with splendid blues tones and nice reflections on the water. I like the flaming sky too. Well done!

Geia sou Danos
You masterfully captured the light show with an outstanding finery that opposes the warm and cold tones of the night for an impossible-to-miss attraction in your gallery.
Please dare offer to Windsor Castle as a giant enlargement!
