Sky Watch: Late Afternoon at Ashton Market

This is a late afternoon view across Ashton Market ground from the steps of the Town Hall.

The stalls of Ashton's popular open market are seen on the right and the Market Hall to the left.

The strange quality of the light has turned the figures into silhouettes. The random scattering of the figures makes me think of the paintings of L S Lowry!

Sky Watch is the regular Friday feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
