Hard to believe this is taken in the very heart of London, that the ‘road’ you see is the The Mall, leading to the Buckingham Palace, and the park, St James’s, is crossed by thousands of tourists every day on their way to or from any of the other tourist attractions that surround it. Taken just after a wintry dawn, ‘the day after it snowed’ in February 2009.

    nice shot, too bad the snow was melting.. i hate this type of weather.. i always get my feet too wet :)

  • I know what you mean :-) I have no-so-fond memories of frozen-wet feet when I was child, walking home from school through the slush… This one though was frozen solid, with blinding sunshine, pure crisp air, and by lunchtime the paths had a lot of dry patches already. Snow doesn’t last here (unfortunately – if it did, people would get more used to see it and cope with it). I’m glad you like the picture, though :-)

    beautiful…. 2009 snow was quiet special… made the city so much more calm-relaxed n lovable :)

  • Thank you :-) Yes, it lasted just enough to give us a taste of winter and it melted away before too many bruises on ice were acquired – and the days after were very sunny, very pleasant. This year we had thick ice on our street (NW London) for more than a week, and even though I love to see a short blizzard once or twice a winter, I was getting fed-up with the weather forecasters’ alerts
