I’ve been out and about locally adding a few new Christmassy images , which may make an appearance in my 2020 range of calendars!
Montpellier Hill in Harrogate was looking particulatly pretty this year with white lights across the entrance to Montpellier Mews and Christmas trees in the shop windows.
I prefer to shoot my Christmas images at dusk so that there’s a nice “blue hour” sky rather than later in the evening when the sky looks black. The sky always looks lovely, but at this time of year dusk means around 4pm so it’s also very busy so it can be quite time consuming to get a few decent images!
In Knaresborough this year the King’s ower at the castle is illuminated with slowly changing coloured lights – not sure I’m keen on the green and red colour scheme, but it looked good with a warm red glow coming from inside the tower…
Over in Ripon, Kirkgate always looks very pretty at Christmas with the view along the street to the cathedral.
The market place also looked great at dusk, but getting a shot including the obelisk means standing at the edge of the square and working between the passing buses and vans!
