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!

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!

Solid

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.

I struggled a bit with the exposure on this, but still quite like the results. This is the underside of yesterday’s footbridge.

Bright and dull

I know I’ve shown a lot of photos of blue skies on this blog (generally because I’m more likely to take lots of pictures when the weather is good, and then I can show them when it’s too wet and miserable to take pictures). But it’s been distinctly grey lately. This was taken along the Clyde walkway – I liked the contrast between the bright orange and yellow of the rescue gear, the grey of the river, buildings and sky and the odd splodge of green and yellow from the trees. The building over the river, in front of the tower blocks, is Glasgow Sheriff Court.

Squintiness

It’s been a while since I’ve had a picture of the Squinty Bridge up. This is taken on the bridge looking to the north bank of the river.
