Winter on the Common

No London scene would be complete without a gas lamp and a security camera

Coming from New Zealand’s Southern Alps, as I do, I often find it difficult to connect with the English version of the ‘outdoors’ as it all seems to be to be so genteel compared to the visceral landscapes with which I am familiar – nonetheless the fact that I am in walking distance of Clapham Common means that I can still get a dose of the English outdoors without having to make any real effort. This weekend has been an outstanding winter’s oasis of calm clear sunshine, and with this you really can feel your spirits rise.
