A couple of weeks ago, wandering by the river on the hope of catching the moment when the Olympic Rings in the Tower Bridge got lit up, I found a wide open stairwell going down to the river bank that is usually closed.
I managed to get right by the waterfront and take a few panoramic shots before the treachery grounds betrayed me and a tripod slip ended up with my lens smashed into the mud.
So, in a sense one could say that this shot costed me my lens*!
Hope you enjoy the panoramic view, the photo was obtained by stitching 9 photos with Hugin and then some final retouches with Photoshop, mostly to deal with long-exposure noise and dodging a little bit the underexposed areas.
* The lens is currently being serviced and will be back in business shortly
