Winter Lights at Canary Wharf

So on Saturday afternoon I went down to Canary Wharf to have a look at the 'Winter Lights' exhibition that they have for the next few weeks in and around the area.

Unsurprisingly there were a lot of tourists and Londoners there, which didn't help with my preferred style of photography, which generally eschews people in shot unless really necessary! So there was quite a lot of standing around, waiting for the crowds to clear long enough for me to get a clean exposure or two. Also the temperature was hovering around or just below zero, which made for rather icy hands; despite having some thin, lightweight gloves, I still had to take them off frequently enough to change lenses or camera settings that they started to get a bit numb after a while, so at that point I decided to pack up and get back into the warm.

There were a few of the works that I didn't get to photograph, so I may end up going back after work one day this week to try and catch those pieces. The Crossrail station is the main area that I didn't make it to yesterday.
