Riding home for Christmas by ellismorleyphto

Well. It was not Christmas. In fact it was the 1st snow of the year… in April. Seriously.

I was riding home after finishing nightshift. It was just after 7am. Of course if it HAD been winter it would have been a lot darker.

Despite the fact that it had been snowing since about 4am, when I awoke at about 2pm, there was not a single trace of the snow to be seen. Lucky then that at the time, I was taking my (RIP) camera everywhere with me.

Morden Road Tram Stop, Surrey, England. April 2007.

Canon IXUS 850is.

I use no post processing of any kind, unless stated.

    Aaar – another train track – not a train in sight!!! I see you use a Canon 85IS – that is the camera in my bag. Goes everywhere with me and I love it. Always switch on and I always use manual settings – get so much more out of it. Great misty shot.

  • Technically it is a tram track, although yes, once upon a time it used to be a train track, apparently. At some point, the line goes onto the road, I would be interested in finding out where it USED to stop.. I would imagine it might have joined up at Mitcham Junction? That’s logical at least. Well… I say interested, I work with enough “anoraks” that I could find out in a flash and probably was told… but sometimes i have more interest in these things than others. :-P

  • btw the tram was there, just leaving the opposite way, I did not think it was good enough for RB but it has been up on my personal Facebook site since I took the photographs :-) Yes, now you mention it, it does look misty but actually, more cool somehow, it’s all snow, there was quite the blizzard! :-D

    This has such a wistful feeling to it…it touches my heart…you have captured not only a beautiful image, but a mood!!! Love this!

  • Thankyou Janine! It was very nice walking home at this time in the morning, knowing others were just about to get up and start having to go to work with this snow… although of course as predicted it did not last until lunchtime… this is why I always take (ok, took, I have been less enthused without my IXUS 850is) my camera everywhere I go :-P

    Such a wonderful title! A lovely thought to go with this misty image. ♥☺

  • Thankyou… there was no mist that day, it was ALL snow… it was quite the blizzard, but when it slowed you could see a LONG way :-)

    Great atmosphere and emptiness in this capture :)

  • Thanks! The emptiness had nothing to do with the snow and everything to do with the time of the morning but I was very happy that the falling snow itself came out in the photograph :-) Really nice of you to stop by! :-)
