Two Temple Place

Two Temple Place on the Embankment in London is a late Victorian mansion built by William Waldorf Astor and was originally designed for use as his estate office by one of the foremost neo-Gothic architects of the late nineteenth-century, John Loughborough Pearson. Astor had emigrated to England in 1891. He was reputed to be the richest man in the world at that time, and no expense was spared when work began on Two Temple Place in 1892.
It is now owned by the charity, The Bulldog Trust, and functions as its headquarters. It is open to the public for only a short period each year when there is an exhibition on.
This window is in the room that used to be Astor's office and is called 'sunrise'. The one at the other end (facing east) of the office is called 'sunset'. Today was a very cold day but bright and sunny and the sun was streaming through the lovely window casting colour onto the panelled walls.

Viewing on black brings out the atmosphere of the place
Stunning - one of my ambitions is to achieve a shot like this. An absolute beauty of a shot.

@fbailey Thank you so much. The colours in the window were brighter than they appear in the photo, but I think it came out less bright because the sun was shining through. Thanks for the fav
