Snow Queen


After all the flooding excitement, I will finish off posting the last of the Christmas photos.

The Snow Queen is the subject of an exquisite window in William Henry Street, one of those unveiled in Saltaire's Living Advent Calendar for 2015. It was hard to decide if this looked better by day or night. I decided to use the daytime view for a change, as you can see the detail of the dancing snowflakes at the bottom better in this one. In fact it is rare that a window looks equally good illuminated and unlit. Its creators, Kristina and Jed, have done a wonderful job here and this is definitely one of my favourites this year. The windows are on show until Twelfth Night, 5th January, so if you're in the vicinity and fancy a look it's not too late. The Trail leaflet is downloadable from the website.

  1. Hi Jenny - I see what you mean about the dancing snowflakes - how wonderfully creative ... isn't she brilliant - and I expect looks good at night too when illuminated.

    I hope the rains today aren't too disastrous for the area - it's been a very desperate period for people and livestock ... with thoughts - Hilary

    PS Happy New Year to you and your family and friends ..
