Gates of Heaven

Sunday 20th November, on my way to the Critical Practice Walk and Talk at the Royal Observatory.

The walk -we were to meet at at 1pm- started at the Prime Meridian, Longitude 0° Latitude 51° 28' 38 N........ even if it rained, and was entitled from Science to Culture........

On my way to the Observatory, I passed St Paul's Bow Common on Burdett Road and stood stunned before the gates of heaven.

The walk unfolded through banks of fog pierced by sparkling winter sun, like in a Turner painting. Beautiful.
