Great Hall of the Natural History Museum


One of the interior scenes I wanted to shoot on our recent trip to London was the Great Hall of the Natural History Museum.

It is one of those iconic interiors, and certainly appealed to me for both its architectural beauty and its photographic potential.

Knowing that tripods are not allowed in the Natural History Museum, I went without one, and hoped for the best.

Fortunately the railing on the top of the first staircase was sufficient enough to ensure a sharp shot.
