Buckingham Palace Photos
Buckingham Palace is the sovereign's official residence in London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Buckingham Palace was built in 1702 and has seen many renovations and alterations. It was first opened to the public in 1993. Nowadays, Buckingham Palace is used not only as a residence for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, but also for the administrative affairs of the monarchical institution. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today.
Architectural photography can be challenging and exciting architectural images can be produced in all weathers. Buckingham Palace pictures on this website were taken in the early afternoon outside the palace and in the park when the sky was cloudy. We would like to revisit this beautiful London attraction and shoot more Buckingham Palace photos under different lighting conditions and at night as the time of day can have an effect on a picture more than any other exterior condition.
A particularly enticing time would be to take some Buckingham Palace images during the blue hour, which is the time between sunset and darkness or early in the morning when the sky is indirectly lit and creates special mood showing intense colors combined with indirect and diffuse light. The effect is caused by the diffusion of light coming from the sun below the horizon.
It is quite often difficult to see into a building during the day due to reflections and dark interiors. But at night time with sufficient lighting it is possible to see parts of the interior and hopefully we will take some extraordinary Buckingham Palace photos.
