Just turning round from yesterday’s photo. It was pretty, though also pretty cold.

Ice on the Clyde

Posted by Jackie on January 13, 2010

As you may know the UK spent the last few weeks in a pretty major cold snap. The photos over the next few days were taken at the weekend – here you can see ice has formed on the river Clyde, the first time I’ve seen that since I’ve lived here. Hopefully it is all starting to thaw now – with any luck this will be the end of it, after having had a burst pipe and no water for a while I’m hoping we get back to normal sooner rather than later!

Bridge and sun

A final picture for now of the old bridge, which I gather from one of the comments on a previous post is still used to carry freight (though I wasn’t aware of this – you can see how overgrown the bridge has got so I was surprised that anything is still able to move along the tracks!). This picture was taken mid-morning – I just happened to get the right angle at the right time.

Calm reflection

This is the previous bridge, reflected in an unfeasibly calm river Clyde. I don’t think I’d ever seen it so calm.

Ironwork

This old and now defunct bridge is over the River Clyde as it heads towards the east end of the city. I loved the old ironwork, they don’t make them like they used to.

Bridge and bridge

Here’s the final railway bridge photo – this one shows just how close it is to the road bridge that carries (among other things) the #44 bus into town that I get so regularly.

I wasn’t organised enough this month to sort out anything for the 1st Nov Theme Day. Whoops! I think I’m just traumatised that it’s November already, how on earth did that happen?

Under the bridge

This was taken walking under yesterday’s railway bridge. I’d never noticed the pattern of the bricks round the arches before.

Railway bridge

This is the bridge that carries trains to and from Central Station. Standing underneath it on the walkway with a train going overhead is quite the deafening experience.

I only noticed very recently that the round structure (no idea what it’s called) has writing carved in it, but even when I enlarge the picture I can’t make out what it says. Some of the characters look Greek to me, but I could well be making that up!

It’s colour, Jim, but not as we know it!

Forgive the pun, I couldn’t resist! Again, this wasn’t a black and white shot, it’s just a particularly grey bit of Glasgow 🙂 I like the patterns and design on this bridge – nice and elegant and understated.

This is one end of the bridge I’ve been showing the last few days. I took a fair few pictures as I walked along this bit of the Clyde, so I’ll show some more over the next few days.
