Christmas Eve

We've been out today doing a few bits of last-minute shopping. We found ourselves walking though Leyburn market, so I took a few photographs. It was a bit foggy. I really like seeing other people's photos from around the world on blogs: they don't have to be great photos, just snapshots of what people see as they wander around. With this in mind, I thought I'd post this morning's efforts.

Merry Christmas!

Oh, that looks so cold. I hope you had fun, nonetheless. Happy Christmas, Dominic!

That takes me back home - like watching the weather report on the local news!

No snow here though - roasting, inside and out today, even my trifle melted!

Merry Christmas!

All I can say is thank goodness I sent the farmer down for my fruit and vegetables - it looks even more cold than I thought it would be. A Merry Christmas to you too.

Love the photos, & I agree with you about the pleasure of seeing photos from various bloggers' localities. That does look like a cold fog!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Belated Christmas and a wonderful 2010!

I enjoy your photos and vids.

Thanks for these comments, everyone.

It may look cold, but by US/Canadian standards, I don't think we know the meaning of the word "cold" in the UK.

It was -7 one night recently: but that was the coldest it's been. During the day it averages zero, I'd guess.

More to come your way yet, I'm afraid. I think we're in the clear this time around.

Dominic, my pc was out of action over Xmas and so I missed your seasonal post, but now it's fixed so belated Merry Yuletide!

ps- What that market needs on such a foggy wintery day is a hot chestnuts and Glühwein stall.

Lyn said...

I feel as though I'm walking through your scenes..maybe because it's snowing here! Not supposed to stick..anyway..have a very Happy New Year!!

Dick: More to come - it's falling here as I type. i don't remember it doing this for years: I've lost count of how many days the snow's been here now.

PiR: Gluhwein is new to me - I've just realised I don't know how to type an umlaut. I'll have to tinker around...

tony: Unfortunately, the opposite is actually happening here. I was down in West Yorks yesterday and apart from the tops the snow had more or less gone in Halifax. Not so here. It just keeps coming.

Lyn: Isn't it great the way pics on blogs can whizz you half way round the world? I got the idea from John Hayes (Robert Frost's Banjo) who often posts photos he's snapped when he's out and about. I keep meaning to do more of it.
