After all the reflection shots this year, it seemed right to end on one! I stopped to take this while going down the steps into Monument metro.

Enjoy your New Year’s Eve!

The Sage and the Tyne Bridge. Taken before sunrise on the winter solstice, from next to the Castle Keep.

Another snowy postbox!

postbox

Another snowy postbox. This one is on Grey Street. I like the way the snow highlights the detail of the ‘ER’ (Elizabeth Regina, or the Queen) towards the bottom.

Reflected sunshine on Clayton Street

I took this on Monday. Don’t they look amazing against a beautiful blue sky?

And a bonus Earl Grey and green twiddly bits in the background, just for all of you :)

Roofs

roofs

We had the discussion a while back about whether the correct word was ‘roofs’ or ‘rooves’. I can confirm that having dug out my Chambers Dictionary (ninth edition for those who care about these things!) that the correct word is ‘roofs’.

Anyway, I took this not long before sunrise yesterday, the shortest day. I love looking down at the roofs from the Tyne Bridge.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pics as good as last year‘s, but there are a couple of nice ones. Another one soon.
