This image of "The Monument" (to the 1666 Great Fire of London) was made in the middle of December whilst testing a new wide-angled lens. By the time he'd refined the shooting position almost to this point Chris had been flat on his back - in the cold - for some time:

"In reviewing the image as I went along I'd become more and more excited: This was no longer testing - this was looking like being a fine image. Finally, squeezing myself still tighter to the paving stones, I turned the camera just a fraction more (to adjust the angled lines of the composition in the viewfinder) and prayed that another vapour-trailed plane would follow earlier ones' high altitude flight path. Surely that would complete things?"

It did.
