We ventured out today for a walk with the doggie. It was life-threateningly dangerous to walk on the pavements as they were covered in very slippery, uneven ice! Brighton and Hove City Council don't seem to bother with making its streets safe to walk with the help of some sand or salt... I only wonder how many bones have been fractured or broken today on the streets!
This orange reflection of the sunset on the ground... pure ice.
We popped in the Northern Lights for a glögg and as we walked in, someone at the bar asked whether my camera was the new 5D. He turned out to be a photographer himself (James Winspear) and we had a chat with him while his lovely springer Max played with Zebedee. Have a look at his web site and you'll see first class architectural, interior and portrait photography. Very impressive, indeed, and he is a very nice person to boot.
Then we went for a walk by the sea before it got dark.
...after which we went back to Northern Lights to have another delicious, warm glögi and some Scandinavian food. The photo is foggy due to the big temperature difference between out and in!
On the way back Miles spotted this fantastic clothes shop window. Click on the picture to see it bigger.
Completely strange to have winter in England! I mean, ice on the roads and everything. I've probably only experienced this kind of thing about three times since I came to England in 1995. According to the weather people the fun is about to end in a couple of days, though.
