I've not been on The London Eye since the year it opened around 15 years ago, and it wasn't something I was thinking about doing again until I walked by it on my most recent visit to London. The queues were short, and the lighting, around 90 minutes until sunset, was about as perfect as it can be. The sun was shining, and there was a light sprinkling of fog still in the air from the night before.
So I suckered up the £23 entry fee and joined the queue.
These are my favourite photos.
