Under Snow-laden Boughs

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

"U" is for "Under Snow-laden Boughs" and today's photo shows the steep pathway in Mossley known as Jacob's Ladder. Mossley is a small town just over the hill from Ashton.

After a heavy snowfall a layer of snow has settled on the boughs of the trees that reach out over the path. Walking down the path you hope that the snow doesn't choose the moment that you are underneath for it to slide off!

Compare today's photo with this one, showing the same location six months ago. What a difference a couple of seasons can make!

Last week we had a view of the Mayor's staircase inside the Town Hall.

The main part of the building, with its Corinthian columns, was opened in 1840, with extensions built to the left and to the rear in 1878.

  5. I can feel the snow sliding into my clothes just from looking at the picture. I swear snowflakes develop some kind of hivemind when it comes to getting into clothes.
