Staying indoors

By mrswoolybill
The view from the bedroom window yesterday morning.
Deliberately grainy, this is Northumberland after all...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Moira.....It's grainy everywhere right now. Yesterday here was utterly miserable. Grey wet and cold. Still Spring is just around the corner !

i like it. the vignetting works really well for this image.

apparently we are getting some snow tomorrow between 2 and 4 only.
we were told not to get our hopes up as it probably was sleet anyway.

Thanks guys.
It's deeper but messier this morning. I'm still staying indoors.
Incidentally, I added some vignetting but mainly the effect comes from the street lamp. These were replaced a few years ago and the new lamps are supposed to reduce light pollution in the sky significantly, it does seem to be working.

At times like this one is grateful for indoor plumbing and facilities, an outdoor privy would not be tempting, no matter how desperate the 'situation' was.

You can have it by the truck load. The only one here who is enjoying it is next door's puppy, and I think even she is having second thoughts.
It's frozen to solid ice here, treacherous underfoot. I can't even get out for the local paper.

Very nice Moira. Were the new lamps really installed to reduce light pollution in the sky, or were
they just trying to save money by cutting down on the illumination. SmileSmile

They have a substantial built-in reflector above the bulb, which increases illumination below and prevents light escaping upwards. A great improvement on the old ones.
Thanks folk!

Part of Boris's levelling up of the country is to install inside loos in areas byond the M25 Wink

It's taken decades to work that one out...
