Sorry I was a bit vague. I was looking at the ones on the first page of this thread - Science Centre and Squinty bridge.

Oldfart I have just fell out with the wife because of you. My bottom and feet have taken root from Sunday as I have not moved from my chair looking at your photies. They are the best effect photos on HG by a long shot. Keep them coming.
Thank you. And why not.

Has everyone else seen the pipe band who do the hokey-cokey on Buchanan Street?

Apologies for not being able to stand still enough to freeze the walls in the background while they were dancing about.

A few final shots of the year from a wee frosty Hogmanay dog walk along the Clyde and Rotten Calder rivers around the Westburn and Newton areas of Cambuslang...

Image
The disused railway viaduct over the Clyde between Westburn and Carmyle - built in the late 1890s and disused for decades, it baffles me why it was never demolished, given that any attempt to reopen the route will probably require replacement of the rusting structure. But I'm glad it's still there, the Victorian lattice girderwork is far more aesthetically interesting than any modern replacement bridge would be.

Image
Another decaying hulk, the burnt-out and vandalised remains of Newton Farm - actually two houses built side-by-side, if you look closely.

Image
Not going to be selling much ice-cream out here in weather like this!

Image
Leaving the farm buildings to the horizon, this is further along the Clyde walkway, with the river down to my right.

Image
Onto the Rotten Calder now, and the giant embankment that carries the West Coast Main Line between Newton and Uddingston stations. Looks like it was cheaper to build a tunnel through the embankment for the river, rather than take the railway over on a giant viaduct. I think this line dates from around 1849.

Image
Close-up of the icicles in the tunnel.

Image
Further upstream, the view from Redlees Bridge, where the sheltered position has created a bit of a winter wonderland - not hugely obvious in this pic, but half the river is covered in ice.
