Last of the melting snow

After the previous frantic post, this is a calmer time-lapse video to soothe the frayed nerves. The view is across the fields from our front door – as far as I am prepared to travel before breakfast (in my dressing gown 😨) . The morning started well enough but even over the hour this was shot, the day started to dull down. Passengers flying into Amsterdam from Minneapolis on a Delta AIrbus A330 and those on a Lufthansa A380 from San Francisco into Frankfurt were treated to the best of Northumberland – they streak across the sky near the beginning of the video.

There is still some snow but the sun is doing its work at least until the next batch arrives:

... the melting snow

And finally – this looks perishing but it wasn’t – the camera always lies 😉

... across the Tyne

    That second photo…wow. The beauty of winter. We’re supposed to get what’s left tomorrow. Nice Christmasy music for your video. 🎄

      Thanks Julie – not sure if I am ahead of or behind the Christmas curve 🙂

  2. Cate Franklyn · February 16, 2016

    You have quite the beautiful view. I can’t imagine how nice and quiet it is there. Especially, at night.

    • northumbrianlight · February 16, 2016

      Thanks Cate – everyone who stays here is surprised by how quiet it is at night – and very dark with virtually no light pollution.

    Oh so soothing, Robin. Thank you kindly.

    • northumbrianlight · February 17, 2016

      Glad it worked, Jean – the IT equivalent of Kwells 😇

      • socialbridge · February 17, 2016

        Never needed Kwells ’til that bike ride!!!!

    Beautiful images Robin- and that view from your door is lovely, I suspect no matter the season-

    • northumbrianlight · February 18, 2016

      Thanks Meg, we are very fortunate living here, we certainly notice the seasons.

    Two video’s for the price of one, Robin! 🙂 Not familiar with the music but I like it. And I love that ‘not cold’ photo.

    • northumbrianlight · February 27, 2016

      Thanks Jo – hope all is well. I have lost track – are you back from Portugal?

      • restlessjo · February 27, 2016

        Yes, been back a couple of weeks, Robin. A quiet month ahead 😦

      • northumbrianlight · February 27, 2016

        A belated welcome home 😊 I was vaguely down in your direction today, playing golf at Richmond – it could have been warmer ⛄

  7. Malin Ellisdotter H · February 27, 2016

    Beautiful images, Robin.I will check the videos too.

    And the sun is doing its work over here too. 🙂

      Many thanks for you generous comment. I am always pleased and surprised by the number of people willing to take time out to read my random thoughts – reading more than one deserves a prize 😀 👍🏽
