Cold rain and Christmas Lights – Winter in London

London has seen little of Jack Frost’s icy fingers so far this year.  Only one morning of snow flakes that melted almost before they touched the ground and a couple of heavy frosts.   Perhaps January and February will bring colder, fresher, weather and the delights of a crunchy landscape?

First photo taken by unknown Post Office official photographer.  Second photo taken by Leonard Burt and initially published in the Financial Times.   I have tried to contact the photographer to seek permission to post this shot that I bought a print of from the Financial Times but I have been unsuccessful.   Should the photographer request its removal I shall be happy to comply.
