It's been a while since we posted about Night Mode in TPE for iOS, but given that the centre of the Milky Way is now re-emerging into Northern skies at night, it seems a good time.

Planning the Shot
Here's a new spin on one of my favorite spots to shoot in London. Earlier this week I noticed that it was supposed to be mostly clear later in the week, so I decided to check out viewing angles on The Photographer's Ephemeris (TPE). Needless to say I was really happy when I happened to notice that the sunset was supposed to be right between Big Ben and the bridge. It was mostly clear today with only a few clouds, so I thought I'd head out at sunset and see if I could get the shot. If you don't use TPE or something like it, you should check it out.

Here's the night version of this shot:
