At this time of year ice rinks are popping up all over the place. I've spent quality time on a good few subsequent Tuesday hanging out at the one at Canary Wharf trying to lure bankers in. That sounds much dodgier than it was, it was legitimate work though I declined joining them on the slippery stuff due to a slight concussion incident many years ago.
This one is a particularly pretty example in the grounds of the imposing German Romanesque Natural History Museum. The blue ice, the twinkly lights Christmas tree and the purple illuminated brickwork. The handful of skaters gliding around rather elegantly, entirely devoid of polar bears. I guess these ones are pretty good at it!
It seemed a fitting final picture of my 365 photo-a-day project. A sparkly festive scene to wrap up the year and herald the beginning of a shiny new year.
