This image pretty much speaks for itself. I would imagine that the British Parliament buildings and Big Ben really can't look bad whether rain, snow, fog or an overcast day. Luckily, we had a nice sunset and a clear day so the buildings really glowed against the sky.
I spent a good deal of time trying to find a unique angle to capture the building but ultimately, after seeing dozens of other photographers trying like me in vein for a unique shot, I gave in and went all in for the post card shot. I say there is no shame in going for the money shot when you can!
