Snow magic

Snow magic

I've been frustrated sitting behind a computer all week while
the snow transformed the town and countryside. Had to cover
the District Court this morning but it was late starting so I
escaped from the stifling hot courtroom to take some pics
in the town centre. Here a blanket of snow and the low
sun made Earl Street look quite different with the Sandra
Bell sculpture Rhyme and Reason, erected to commemorate the
visit of President Bill Clinton ten years ago, casting a long shadow.

Long winter's shadows really add a lot!

Nice one, I guess Bill casts a long shadow too.

A beautiful capture of the dappled wintry light and a lovely street scene. I particularly like that sculpture.

welcome sun on such a cold day, and it produces such raking shadows...V
