London Picture of The Day – Frozen Lake
London picture of the day was taken during a rather chilly winter time walk I embarked upon in the park last week. I think the frozen over image of St James Park lake gives an indication as to how cold it was! It was chapping!
Anytime I walk over the pedestrian bridge which goes across the lake in St James Park I can never resist stopping and taking a couple of pictures. The views are amazing. The water, trees and the old buildings around Horse Guards and of course the London Eye in the distance makes for a stunning picture. And above all else it is a great place to chill out for bit!
King James I, he kept a selection of exotic animals in St James Park during his reign, which included camels, crocodiles, elephants and aviaries of exotic birds. Fortunately the famous pelicans are as exotic as it gets nowadays!
