Something I admire immensely about London is the beautiful balance that has been achieved between city and nature. It’s a wonderful achievement and such a gift. While walking through a park I came upon this scene which I felt illustrated the balance so well. I pass it every day on my walk and it has become one of those special places and views I treasure. I can understand why the parks are called the lungs of the city. They are the breath through which the city finds its rest, life and vitality. I must say the scene looks a little different now with the advent of Winter – still beautiful, but in a different way.
