The New Year on Market Street

Not New Year's Day but the first Saturday in January around 9.45 a.m. Hyde Market is on the left and the Town Hall is on the right.

Overnight there had been a sharp frost and fresh snow started falling around 8.30 a.m. so by the time people went out to start shopping even the main roads were affected. The snow had stopped briefly which was when I took this and some other photographs. It soon started snowing again though and continued most of the day.

By lunch time the gritters had been out, the main roads were passable and the market ground was awash with salty slush.

This photograph looking up Market Street was taken from the middle of the road by the bollard you can see in the photograph looking down Market Street which can be found on Hyde DP Xtra.

I hate it when the pretty snow turns to grimy slush. Very nice "middle of the road" shot!

I like the rich colors of the buildings against all that white
very pretty scene
I love the air when it first stops snowing - all that stillness

Looks like a great place to just take a casual walk...

Very wintery!!! Thanks for the feedback about my text colors on my blog. I changed it to white, so hopefully it stands out better :)
