London in the snow… covered in snow… London, so quiet and so still… London in a monochrome mood… almost grisaille.
Noisy, busy and overcrowded London is bathed in beauty… A metropolis turned white… It is hard to imagine that a few months ago Olympians were playing beach volley ball on Horse Guards Parade.
Buckingham Palace… early this morning… The guards, always standing tall , always on duty.
My camera played peek- a-boo with Big Ben and the London Eye… they popped in and out of my photos as I walked up the Mall… There was something other worldly about the light this morning… it was so calm… so flat, so still… and very peaceful… I felt as if I had the world to myself… I needed no reminder that nature is the master of beauty.
The snow has stopped falling for now, I am back home and warm again.
After hours trudging around in the snow I am so happy to be inside… Snow in London, of this quantity, is rare… special.
It is the kind of snowfall that has strangers chatting in the street, looking out for each other and comparing snaps.
Magical in every way… xv
