F is for… Fog [ABC Sundae]
Fog is a rarity in Glasgow, and when it does come for a visit, it seems to have a tendency to stick around for a bit (I’m basing this on my 2.5 year experience of Glasgow’s weather). Apparently the Glasgow-Prestwick Airport (some 32 miles south-west of Glasgow) is the UK’s only fog-free airport, owing to the local weather patterns. I assume this would also help to explain the complete lack of thunder in Glasgow. Then there’s the Irn Bru sky, when the night sky over Glasgow is a rich dark and glowing orange. Have you noticed any other weather peculiarities in and around Glasgow?
With gothic spires, great architecture and leafless trees scattered around campus, it’s a fantastic place for some fog photography. I’ve previously posted a few photos of the University in the midst of fog, which you can see here, here and here.
