In Pictures: Foggy London

We don't get many pea soupers these days, but every now and then there's a proper foggy day in London. Take a look at the city shrouded in mist, captured by our excellent friends on Flickr.

Nothing even remotely like a "pea-souper" - those had 10-metre visibility (or less!) & were the colour of pea soup - yellowy-brown.
And, no, not pollution, either - no smell of sulphites.
It WAS a really good thermal inversion over the London basin, though & very "atmospheric" - I was probably on my allotment-plot, 500 metres away, when the photo of Lloyd Park was taken.
Much appreciated.
