Christmas is coming

At least it is to the shopping malls, as here at princes quay, although the decorations seem less extensive then those of previous years. At least we have already done most of our Christmas shopping.

We were expecting a winter wonderland!


As usual we visited Castleton today, and after the dire weather forecasts this week expected a winter landscape, but no such luck!
Heavy rain, a few sleet showers, and high winds were the order of the day, and even a lttle sunshine too!

Still fortunately free of snow at the moment..

We went shopping in Driffield and I couldn't resist a slight detour to photograph North Dalton Church, a huge Gothic creation that seems lost in quiet rural countryside.
Because it's so tall I've had to correct the verticals, and also do a bit of both shadow recovery, and Jazz up the highlights..  All good fun

19th November: first Winter snow

We were lucky in that we only had sleet, but up on the Moors they had two inches, we drove out to Hornsea at sunset and captured this little lot coming in from the East.
Makes you want to hibernate, doesn't it?

The last Rose of summer?

Took this yesterday on the Samsung Phone Camera before the first hard frost of the season

Visited Scarborough today

Still some people about even though the season is over, we parked on the Marine Drive, which is free during the winter months, and ate our packed lunch watching this group of "would be" surfers hoping rather forlornly for a wave.
It was not to be! hardly a ripple disturbed the sea. It must have been cold out there!

Bonfire Night

Once again, as has happened for 35 years or so that the estate has been built, the local kids built their November 5th Bonfire and put a Guy on top.
And for a change, the weather was kind, no wind or rain, and apart from a chilly wind, it was a very pleasant evening

It's been so long since I last posted!

I had forgotten the blog still existed!
Anyway here are a couple of images from our trip up to Castleton last Friday
The weather was awful heading north, but eased after lunch to give short bursts of sunshine in the valleys at least.

With any luck I shall be posting more regularly again!
