Cold Geese

Posted by Alan on January 2, 2011

A short video from the Christmas holiday – these are Canada Geese by Cowm Park Reservoir.

Isn’t Canada meant to be really cold?

So WHY ARE THESE GEESE SHIVERING?!

BorisBikes in the snow

Posted by Alan on December 27, 2010

With the recent snow across London and the South East I think it will be interesting to see the impact on the cycle hire scheme. Certainly the bank of bikes at Euston Underpass on Sunday (19 Dec) was full and most bikes bearing some snowy evidence of not having moved anywhere for a while! – Personally I’ve avoided cycling too, though after Christmas with luck the snow will recede and I’ll be back on the saddle… For now, here’s a few pictures of bikes in the snow!

Unlike my last evening sojourn onto the streets with the camera I found just one brave soul cycling along.

SNOWPOCALYPSE

Posted by Alan on January 8, 2010

Yes, it’s been awfully silly weather the last few weeks, so here are some photos!

Ruth in the snow
What the bloody hell are you waiting for? It’s cold!
Bus Stop, The Forest
The stop might have been frozen, but the buses kept on working this time…
Eagle Pond is frozen. It usually has an ‘oasis’ of water – around which the birds congregate. Since the water is in a different place each day I don’t know why it forms where it does!

With thanks to Billy (@cowfish) for the title of this post!

Do not pass go

Posted by Alan on February 2, 2009

Yes, today was interesting! Ruth got up really early to go to the gym. About an hour later, she’d made it as far as Leytonstone – one stop down the line towards London. So sensibly, I decided I’d log on and find out about working from home…

A lunch time I took a break and walked up the village centre where I grabbed a few photos and ingredients for a nice warm cooked breakfast. Mmmm.
