The Great Westminster Clock

Just as the sun began to drop, the low autumnal light fell upon the face of the clock. 

Behind,  Big Ben, the thirteen and a half ton bell prepared for its half hour chime. 

P1060377-001

The clock is accurate to within one second and engineers add or remove pennies to the pendulum to speed it up or slow it down. Wonderful.
