Strathclyde Park in the snow...

I took a walk round Strathclyde Park's Loch this afternoon... whilst Olly and the we'ans went to Forbidden Planet (more geek pride :-) ). It was amazing to see the water frozen solid. So solid in fact that I watched a couple walk around the island (below) and a fox cross the channel from the island to the "main land".

It took me a good couple of hours to walk around... due to the snow on top of the ice. The light was awesome... with me only losing the light in the last fifteen minutes or so.

Strathclyde Park is a real "thin place" for me... and it was a real privilege to be creative with the works of the creator.

Here is the full set on Flickr.

Another good set of photos and it is a long time since our lochs could hold the weight of people and animals on their ice covered surfaces. Your photos record the effects of the coldest December/ January in many years.

Perhaps the bonspiel will be possible on the Lake of Monteith as the organizers hope?
