Icy Glorious Moments in the Sun
The sun broke through the clouds for a brilliant day-ending finale. Every cyclist crossing Queen Louise's Bridge glanced at least once towards the blinding light. Thousands of eyes drawn to it.
Then this girl stopped her bike. Pulled off the bike lane in mid-pedal. Just to lean on her handlebars and enjoy the sun for a long moment.
And this chap went so far as to hop off his bicycle and watch the swans and gulls swirl ecstatically about in the dying Nordic light.
This girl went the whole nine yards. Opting to amble along The Lakes to absorb every ray of light she possibly could before the sun set.
