A beautiful morning for a cycle

HydeParkMist

It was a bright, beautiful, sunny morning when I headed out on the road at about 8.15am.

The road seemed quieter than normal (it’s half-term) and despite a chill in the air it didn’t feel quite as cold as it has felt over the past week or so. Either that, or perhaps my toasty warm layers (and socks) are doing their job properly.

At Hyde Park I was rather captivated by the low-lying misting hovering over the playing fields by the South Carriage — especially when coupled with the powder-blue sky and the lovely languid shapes of the bare-branched trees. I just had to stop to take some quick snaps (above and below).

It’s wonderful mornings like this, when it’s bright and cold, and the sun’s rays filter down through the trees that I’m so grateful I made the effort to cycle rather than catch the tube.

  1. Hard to believe London looks that quiet at 8:15 in the morning. Can’t imagine cycling along the botanical gardens in Melbourne and there being that few cars around.

  2. Hi Helen, the photo was taken inside Hyde Park, which has restricted vehicle access so its never very busy. But theres a road that runs adjacent to the one in the picture outside of the park which is a NIGHTMARE.
