Kelvingrove in Winter

kelvingrove mist copyright kerry dexterhKelvingrove Park lies at the west end of Glasgow. It has been well loved by Glaswegians since the mid nineteenth century, when it was established along the banks of the River Kelvin, to give a green space at the west end of the quickly growing urban character of Glasgow as the Industrial Revolution progressed.

It is a vibrant space on sunny days, filled with children playing, people riding bicycles on their way to city center or the nearby university, and workers on tea break.

When mist, fog, and frost arise, though, as they did on a recent January morning, it almost seems as though you are in a quiet place the Highlands.

Update:… or perhaps it will seem you are in Boston, Massachusetts, in the USA, In season three of the televison series Outlander, Kelvingrove stands in for a park in Boston where Claire Randall, the character played by Irish actress Caitriona Balfe, often walks.
