Skating at Tower Bridge

Skating at Tower Bridge takes a bird’s-eye view of the frozen surface surrounding the landmark bridge. Tiny human forms skate beneath it, casting extraordinarily long shadows, yet appear as inconsequential as pinheads or iron filings.

    The Last Frost Fair was held on the Thames in the winter of 1814… I miss it, maybe it will be back 2015/16 -70, as predicted by Dr. Theodor Landscheidt.

    You know, London is a bit like this right now. After 30 years of Global Warming, it’s lovely to have these little episodes of freezing rain, snow, icy roads and burst pipes as a change from the unbearably hot weather we have to suffer for most of the year.

    Nicely chilled. But… if that shadow at top left is of the Tower of London, then the point of view is east of Tower Bridge and the sun is low in the north-east – something confirmed by the traffic stop lines. Which restructuring of the earth’s alignment would cause somewhat more climate change than any amount of anthropogenic global warming!

      Thanks for your comment. The image is based on a photograph – photos / shadows of people on the bridge are real. It is very early morning light dramatically picking out the Tower of London.
