To get this shot looking toward the Horse Guards Parade building, Baker used a 300 mm telephoto lens and positioned himself on a footpath in St. James’s Park, withBuckinghamPalace not far behind him. Each June, a regiment of the British Army parades before the Queen in full traditional dress on the Horse Guards Parade grounds, a ceremony known as “Trooping the Color.” The spires in the background belong to government buildings, including Scotland Yard.”
