Whenever I did my snow blog last December, I didn’t expect to be doing a follow-up so soon afterwards. Certainly not at the start of March.
When it comes to snow, I am such a big kid, and can’t get enough pictures of it.
Unfortunately, I was in work on Thursday, so I had to make the most of what opportunities I had.
So, I got up early on Thursday morning to get some photos of Belfast City Centre before work.
One advantage of it snowing in March, is that the mornings are a lot brighter than in December/January, which you can use to your advantage when taking photos.
I managed to get photos of Belfast City Hall and Victoria Square. Belfast City Hall is one of my “big three” when the snow comes down for getting photos, the others being Ormeau Park and Windsor Park. I would get photos of Ormeau Park on the Saturday. Unfortunately that was at the expense of Windsor Park. The snow had gone by Sunday morning, meaning I couldn’t get the photos I wanted.
Thursday lunchtime was spent at the upstairs part of the Fountain Centre, some of which was closed off, unfortunately, these were the areas I wanted to visit, and try and get some aerial photos.
I was out of work early on Thursday afternoon, but not substantially early to take advantage of it, though I did get some photos of Botanic Gardens on my way home.
By Friday morning, there wasn’t anything additional, and that looked like being that in terms of my snow adventures.
Or so I thought, as I woke up on Saturday morning and Belfast was covered in snow, and it was still coming down.
I headed out to get some photos, starting with Ormeau Park.
When it snowed in December, Ormeau Park offered some fantastic photo opportunities, so I headed out to make the most of it.
As a bonus, Ormeau Park was full of 13/10 doggies, though it is like that all year round.
By this point, Linfield’s match, scheduled for Saturday afternoon, was now postponed, so my snow adventures weren’t timebound any more.
I headed into the City Centre, which was mostly slush, before heading home through Stranmillis/University, which was a lot more photographable.
By Sunday morning, the thaw had arrived, and the opportunity for snow photos had gone.
Apologies for the lateness of this blog, I had some laptop issues to deal with.
I don’t anticipate having to write another snow blog anytime soon, but you never know.
