Christmas morning in Glasgow. Overnight was below zero but seemingly not as cold as last night when parts of Britain were colder than Alaska.

With reasonable visibility and the main roads clear, I cycled down into Glasgow centre this morning to obtain some images of the River Clyde and the general snowy landscapes. Unusually we have a white Christmas so this opportunity might not arise again for a few more years. An interesting and productive morning without the severe cold of yesterday.

Here is an interesting shot, the paddle steamer Waverley, Armadillo Conference Centre, Finnieston Crane, the Squiggly Bridge and the Squinty Bridge.

This shot is looking downstream with the Tall Ship, ‘Glenlee’ on right bank.

Science Centre Tower on right and Ship-building cranes at Govan on right.


Similar to above.

This video clip shows the Steamship ‘Waverley’, Armadillo Conference Centre, Finnieston Crane ( a relic of Glasgow’s shipbuilding past) and the Science Centre Tower. In the summer time it is possible to travel to top of the latter and obtain fantastic views of Glasgow and beyond.
