In the early evening sky the moon is on the left and between the trees the planet Venus can be seen.

New Year on the Trans Pennine Trail

A woman with three dogs and a woman on a horse have just come under Dowson Road bridge. A responsible dog owner is cleaning up after her pet.

A contribution to the Picture of the Year theme at City Daily Photoblogs. Traditionally this has been chosen from photos published earlier in the year but circumstances have prevented me from posting regularly in 2016. This time I am posting a photograph taken shortly after midday on New Year's Day.

Rainy Reflections in Hyde

This view from the entrance of the Clarendon Shopping Centre looking across the edge of the market ground past the former Bank Chambers on the left and the Town Hall on the right and towards Corporation Street was taken on a very rainy day last month.

I've had a lot on my plate these last few months and haven't had time to regularly post photographs on any of my blogs but I am still around taking a few and sorting my way through a backlog of over a thousand photographs taken in August and September. I'm slowly adding most of them to the Geograph website.

Out of Hyde Town Hall (out of focus)

A few weeks ago I was able to join a group of people on a guided tour of the inside of Hyde Town Hall. I took loads of photographs but due to circumstance I've not had time to focus on sorting out a huge backlog of photographs and blogging about them.

This was taken through a window in the room below where the clock mechanism resides. The camera focused on the window leading so this view of Market Street is out of focus.

One day I will get round to publishing my other photos from that day including ones of the clock mechanism. It is easy to get unfocused up there - the contractors yesterday put the clock an hour forward instead of an hour back!
