Nine Ten Eleven Twelve Thirteen


This view of Swain's Valley was taken at ten minutes past nine on the eleventh of December 2013 - i.e. at 9:10, 11/12/13.

Beyond the fence the morning sun is quickly shifting the overnight frost.

  2. Yes the low sun gives now a nice opportunity to photograph some really atmospheric pic's. One condition . Sun must be shining. Thanks for showing Gerald.

  3. Sounds a lot warmer there than here if the morning sun can shift the overnight frost.

    1. it's the area between Garside Street, Haughton Street and the Trans Pennine Trail - the adjacent allotments is called Swain's Valley and I haven't found an alternative name for this grassy area. The Market Street end of Dowson Road to Kirkley Street/Markland Street was called Swain Street prior to the building of Dowson Road from there to Gerrards.
