Light Reflections

I should have stayed at home today! I got to the station this morning only to find the trains had been delayed then cancelled. Eventually we were told to catch a train to a station further out, change trains and get into London via a different route.

So off we all went to the other platform, waited 15 minutes then heard the announcement that train had also been cancelled.!

So.. back over to the usual platform and an hour's wait standing in the snow before a train finally turned up. Two hours to get in and frozen feet...!!

Couldn't be that bad going home surely....

Nope... Was worse! Over 2 hours on the platform listening to "The 17:45 is running 115 minutes late" "The 17:58 has been cancelled" "The 18:09 is running 64 minutes late".. And so on and so on until the best line "Attention passangers on platform 7 (where I was freezing my whatever's off..) We do not know where your train is at the moment"...

Well... You have to laugh don't you!!

Eventually a train came in, we squeezed on and I got home in the end.

So cold today. It's at least -4 outside but feels a hell of a lot colder. Too cold for anything more than another quick shot at the Wharf. This was taken near to the last standing Victoria storage/bonding warehouse looking across West India Quay.
another great night shot

Shouldn't laugh - but yes I did - 'sorry we don't know where your train is' - you couldn't make it up. Great night-time shot.

I'm impressed you even took any shots after that carry on. If it's any consolation I found ice on the INSIDE of my car windscreen this morning : / . Great shot of the wharf again, reflections are lovely.

Beautiful shot! I can't help but laugh at your story, purely because the situation was so ridiculous! Glad you finally made it home though.
