Snow magic


The Saltaire Boathouse Inn (bar and restaurant) seen from the footbridge across the River Aire between Saltaire village and Roberts Park.  For the difference the seasons make, see here.

According to the media, this country is paralysed because of the snow.  (What that really means is it's snowy in London and the south-east.)  There does seem to be all sorts of chaos in the transport systems and I must say I'm very glad I don't need to get anywhere in a hurry.  But - hooray! Someone has actually cleared a path down the pavement on the main road through Saltaire.  It makes my walk to work a good deal safer.  Thank you, whoever it was.

  1. The reflection is magic. It sure looks different in winter. I don't envy you having to go to work in the snow.

  6. Very pretty. Love that hint of colour in an otherwise black & white world. And I can see the attraction of the inn's terrace in warmer weather.

  7. Yes, "England" often means "London" in foreign medias, like Paris means France..You're still on my TV, as well as Germany and USA, to say how much snow there is this year. I'm always trying to see if they speak about Saltaire! :))but not yet..

  10. That is a terrific snow image, Jenny. The buildings are interesting, and you used the bridge nicely to frame it.

    I hope the snow abates enough for you to get home. Have a warm and wonderful Christmas.
