St James Park, London

St James Park covered in snow
St James's Park is the oldest of the Royal Parks of London. It stretches from Buckingham Palace at one end to Horse Guards Parade at the other. The park has a small lake, St James's Park Lake, with two islands, Duck Island (named for the lake's collection of waterfowl), and West Island.

A bridge across the lake affords a westward view of Buckingham Palace framed by trees and fountains, and a view of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, similarly framed, to the east.
