A cold day in Copenhagen

It was cold in Copenhagen the other day. The benches on the City Square were deserted, but the pigeons made good use of warm air from a ventilation shaft

Power

Lately I have been catching the train to Copenhagen. It beats battling the traffic on the roads and searching for parking. Coming out of Copenhagen central station is a comglamoration of rail tracks. In the background is the power station named after the Danish discoverer of Electro Magnitism H. C. Ørsted. It was here in 1956
The IL-14 operated on an international Aeroflot passenger service from Moscow-Vnukovo (VKO) to Copenhagen (CPH), Denmark with an en route stop at Riga (RIX). Impacted a chimney and crashed into the southern harbour of Copenhagen killing all 23 people on board.
The light was very special so I quickly snapped a picture through the train window

Phoenix Garden

I discovered it by chance on the net and we determined to look for it when next in London. Phoenix Garden https://www.facebook.com/thephoenixgarden/ is situated between Soho and Covent Garden. We found it after some searching. It is a little oasis in the middle of the busy city.It is bordered by Large apartment buildings, The Church of St. Giles in the Fields and the Phoenix Theatre, and yet is utterly peaceful. It is purposely laid out to encourage wildlife and insects, with dense bushes and the odd pile of bricks. Frogs spawn in a little pond and comfortable benches invite visitors to rest in peaceful surroundings. We have returned there many times
