Broken silence

The prompt from the Daily Post for this week’s photo challenge is Silence.

I was too slow to get outside to take a photo of the blanket of snow, which muffled sounds overnight. By the time I was wrapped up warm there was a steady dripping sound of melting snow!

A favourite tourist destination

The photos I have chosen for the Favourites photo challenge are two I have not shared previously. They were taken on an overcast afternoon in August. The town is perhaps one of the most visited in England – Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Can you spot the helicopter? It rather spoils one of the photos.

I wish all my readers peace and joy at Christmas.

Going up

I have stretched the meaning of Ascend for this week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post. Ascend means to go up. Christmas decorations have been going up in many places. Ours at home were put up on Wednesday, when the temperature rose slightly so that the loft was not such an unappealing place to enter.

In shopping malls they have already been up for weeks. Here are two I took in November. I had not even ascended by escalator having entered the mall on the first floor level. (US readers might count that as the second floor: we have ground floor, first floor and so on.)
