I was delighted to win the CBS Outdoor “I love my city” competition with this image. It was taken on 19th February from Observation Wheel Leeds (Leeds eye) as part of my project to collect views from the wheel.
I was out and about during the afternoon and noticed that it looked like we might get a good sunset that evening. I’d put my camera in the car boot just in case! 19th Feb was my 3rd trip up the wheel as I’d been up twice as part of the media previews day on the 15th.
Places of interest from left to right
