Pollock Park Glasgow in Winter Sunshine

Sunday, February 08, 2009

This morning, temperature was below freezing but visibility good. My timing was good as there occurred snow flurries this afternoon.

I took a trip to Pollock Park which has been voted one of the top public parks in Europe. Firstly, I came across a friendly ( docile) Highland Bull who was feeding contentedly. However, would not like to tangle with him when he is angry!

Near to Pollock House ( a heritage building open to the public) I took a video clip of the the river which runs nearby, this is actually called the White Cart Water. The temperature is evident by blocks of ice around the edges. The weir/waterfall in the video is a remnant of a former mini-hydro electric scheme which was used to provide electricity to the House before the era of mains electricity. Perhaps thought should be given to re-harnessing this energy source.
