Market at Twilight

(Click photo for larger version.)

Now that the Big Thaw has taken place it's a good time to be reminded what Ashton looks like without a covering of snow!

In the depths of Winter, darkness falls before the shops and market close so, towards the end of the day, you find scenes like that in today's photo, in which shoppers are finishing off their tour of the shops and market before making their way back to the bus or car.

As you can see from the sky, it is not quite dark yet but dark enough for aall the lights to make this image quite dramatic.

The photo shows Ashton's open market, with the Market Hall in the background.

"Market at Twiglight" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.

  1. I love marketplaces - nice to see Ashton's :)

  2. Glad to hear the big thaw has started. Spring can be far behind and I am sure this market will be a busy with shoppers.

  3. It still looks a bit, what shall I say, desolate? It is wet and cold like in our country.

  4. I forget just how short the days are in the Northern latitudes.

  5. Neat looking marketplae. I am happy you are in a thaw now too.

  6. beautiful shot. whenever i go to a different place, one of my favorite place to go is their local market because it is in there where i observe the true culture of the place and the people. :)

  7. I love market places - to me they're the epitome of a great town/village.

    Ashton's market place is a great one too and you're shot shows it at its wintry best!
