Picture of the Week – Riverside Museum Illuminations

with one comment

I took this picture earlier in the week after an exhilarating evening in which the mighty South African Railways Locomotive 3007 arrived at Riverside Museum, its final destination.

Contactors and staff were finally starting to head home and the museum site began to close up for the night. Just before the lights went out I used one last chance to capture a shot of the north window illuminated against a beautiful Glasgow sky. A long exposure for the night shot was helped by a pile of rubble that doubled as a handy tripod!

In the foreground you can see the paving currently being installed at the front entrance and on it, the reflection of the lights from the across the river. The image hints at just how spectacular the building will look once completed.
