Winter is coming!

If today's Sky Watch image doesn't make you feel chilly....

Yes, it's a reminder that Winter really is upon us. A small number of hardy leaves still cling forlornly to the trees as we look out across the damp and chilly landscape of the Tame Valley in Mossley. Although Mossley is only 4 miles from the centre of Ashton, it is surrounded by hills, with a thin coating of snow on the higher slopes.

Just add a thin, miserable sleet falling and a chill wind and the warm days of Summer are nothing but a distant memory!

It seems to be such a short time ago that this same view was so very different. Such is the turning of the seasons....

Sky Watch is a regular weekly 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!


  1. Great composition with the framing of the trees, I hate the winter-we have had some snow but its been very very squally mostly up in Scotland with gales and heavy rain. Roll on Spring or Summer:/

  2. A lovely image to see... and I am just up the road in Northwich... I have just had a nice browse around your blog.

  3. Beautiful!!! Enjoy the weekend's skies, blue, grey, or filled with a pallet of many colors!

  4. It does look cold. Nice shot!

  5. Sounds like a good day to go back inside and enjoy a hot chocolate! Thanks for sharing your part of the world.

  6. Really a great photoblog. I love these photos:) My friend referred it to me. Looks like everyone knows about it, just I didn't...until now. Waiting new photos;)
