Despite the wintry weather I managed to get out to take some local photographs four days in a row last week!
I started on foot in Knaresborough with a few atmospheric images as the snow began to fall.
On the snowiest morning, the main roads were still clear so I headed to Ripon (by bus – despite the driver looking a bit bemused at me buying a day ticket when it was snowing!). The sun came out in Ripon, so I was faced with blue sky – quite nice but I couldn’t help thinking the bright white sky and diffused light of the other images looked better…
Back in Harrogate, Valley Gardens had a decent covering of snow…
…as did the Montpellier Quarter!
I made my way across The Stray in rather windy conditions – beautiful to see the snow blowing in the wind, but it was bitterly cold!
Back at Knaresborough the Castle now had a deeper covering of snow.
My final shoot of the snowy week was a trip to Aldborough and Boroughbridge, where the Devil’s Arrows looked particularly impressive in the snow.
All of the shoots were undertaken by public transport – thanks to The Harrogate Bus Company for getting me there in the wintry conditions!
