Romance in the air!

I decided a while ago to get winter tyres fitted to my car, since I have to drive over the high Pennine moors to my daughter's home periodically. I find it a hair-raising drive at the best of times and, whilst I don't deliberately drive in snow if I can help it, there is always the chance of getting caught out by bad weather. So, the expense and hassle of specialist tyres seems worth it. It meant a bit of waiting around at the garage in Silsden, so I went for a walk. The Leeds-Liverpool canal winds its way through the centre of the little town. I took a snap from the bridge on my iPhone and then added some textures to the image, whilst I waited for the car to be finished. Much better than being bored! The end result gives a decidedly romantic flavour to the scene.


  1. You did the right thing Jenny, those winter roads would be scary without them! You created a masterpiece while you waited, the textured look is terrific, I have no idea how you did it but that what a fab way to use otherwise lost time!

  2. That looks beautiful!
    The snow tires will make a huge difference. I hope you got them installed on new rims so that you change the whole wheel each season rather than having the tires themselves changed over. It is worth it in the long run.

  3. Very painterly, jennyfreckles!
