Glasgow Park in Scottish Winter

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

The extreme cold weather continues in Scotland. This is now a once in 30 year perhaps once in 100 year event which is causing a range of problems across a wide sphere spanning roads, trains, schools, fuel deliveries, frozen pipes and even treacherous walking on the frozen pavements (sidewalks).

Today, there was a plus side in that overnight Glasgow had a light deposit of snow subsequent to which we had the benefit of bright sunshine and blue skies-a great combination for photographs!

I had not planned to venture out today but I could not resist the photo opportunities adverted to above so I took off to nearby, Rouken Glen where I obtained the portfolio of images provided below.

In past times Rouken Glen was an industrial area but is now a public park amenity with golf course and is very popular with local residents and their dogs.



Here is a shot of a waterfall with frozen lake to the left.

This is, in fact another waterfall, although difficult to see through the frozen trees.

I find it very strange to see Rouken Glen in anything but bright sunshine!
