Exterior of The Velodrome, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Seeing gorgeous evening on the way back from an Essex job I stopped off at The Velodrome to grab a few exterior shots as the sun fell to the horizon. I liked the way the sun was reflected in the windows of the building – giving a double set of shadows on the pavement.
