Still on last night just before midnight as I passed, I've never really paid attention to the timings though.

You want to go before midnight, around 1130pm the ambient light in the sky will be too low to get a good balance of light. Arrive around 30mins after sunset and shoot around 40mins

Really nice shot Steve, great timing with some light still in the sky, and a nice fairly close crop.(y)

Nice shot. Surprised you never went for a reflection shot though ;)
Was blowing a bit of a wind like. I've done the reflection shot before. The amount of "street furniture" like railings, steps, pylons make it a PITA.

Reckon this place will suit a grey dark cloudy day with the steely structures contrasting against a black sky

Probably up your street mate such conditions and tie it in with the forth bridge
