Photography in the Snow.

Last week, I was off work for a week, very pleasant, especially since the UK has been experiencing snow storms, which is highly unusual. For my part of the world, we get snow but not to the excesses we've experience. Normally, I usually disagree with the tabloid hysteria the Beast From the East, as usual, the news created mass panic. I would suggest this has been harsher winter due to how numerous cold spells and bouts of snow. Compared to last few years, winters have been mild. Generally, when it does snow the British infrastructure seems to freeze ( bad joke). I generally believe this sort whether is abnormal to us compared to us compared to, Canda, the USA,  and Scandinavia who all deal with it.

My favourite stories was about Greg's van, who was stook on a motorway unable to make deliveries and offered everybody free pastries and cake.




The Boyfriend and I spent a pleasant stormy afternoon in the local pub from two till about nine.


On Thursday, I went out with my camera to get some shost of the city while the snow was lying, and I thought I might not get this opportunity again. I wanted also edited a few of the pictures.






This was apart of Newcastle's orginal medieval wall that protected the city. I was trying to capture  the moment of the snow during the windy spells, it just looked so magical.


These are few photos of St Nicholas's catherdral.



This biazze onmally is the infamous vampire rabbit. That local legend States the grotesque came to life leaving its perch  to frighten the grave robbers who  wete in rampant in the area.

However, not a huge amount information is known about there is one theory states it was originally a hare it ears we're destroyed when they were replace the were shorter and placed on backwards. Others suggest, the architect William Wood, made as a reference to Sir George Hate Phipson, they very close .friends .  Phipson was a prominet doctor and freemason, hares have symbolic meaning in the freemason.

Originally the rabbit was a Sandy stone colour with the black paint being a mordern addition enchancing the rabbits grumesome nature. This maybe a reference to St Nicholas burial grounds were believed to be burial for vampire as a few bodies were found  facing down so they weren't able to dig out of  the graves.





This is a photograph I've waited years to take. Its of St Mary hertage centre over looking the iconic Tyne Bridge in the snow.

  1. It seems like the snow came very unexpected for a lot of countries this year. Here in Sweden we also have our first real winter in many many years!

    Also I don't know why but everytime I visit your blog some of the pictures you have uploaded doesn't show, it's just a big minus there instead of a picture :/

    1. Thanks it was nice to be off and enjoy watching it. I also glad it melted. I'm not sure how we would cope of we had that amount all the time.

      The rabbit is a bit creepy. It also one of the oddities.

  4. Lovely pictures in the beginning of this post!
    It's kind of hilarious how messed up everything gets from a few inches of snow, isn't it? I may live in Sweden, but I live in the far south, surrounded by water, so snow is unusual here as well.

  5. I bet everything does look magical in the snow over there! Here we just have snow (and lots of it) but no cool castles or gargoyles underneath it all. lol

  6. I think it's very beautiful to look and gives some of the medieval buildings an interesting and beautiful dimension. If we had all the time I think I would hate and imagine landscape and scenery play a huge impact on it.
