Silhouette of Parliament Building, London, England, 2000

Photo: Clouds over Westminster Abbey

The spires of Parliament cut dramatic shapes into a blushing twilight sky. The London landmark, also known as the Palace of Westminster, sits on the banks of the Thames River and is the assembly site for the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
