Shrewsbury in winter (England)

Hello fellas,

During the last couple of days, Shrewsbury and the surrounding areas have also got hit with large amounts of snow, just like many areas around Britain at the moment. This country is certainly unable to handle situations that come with winter let it only be a handful of snow and some ice, but hey, I am not here to complain about this problem now. 

The heavy snow has brought a new face to Shrewsbury that I have not experienced since I moved to the capital of Shropshire, so it was a given topic for me to carry out a little photography project in the town centre, in the close vicinity where I live. 

On Sunday the 10th December, it was literally snowing all day, so the first 1/3 of my photos show when the snow came down and how grey and dark the day looked. On Monday the 11th December then I woke up to an amazing, freezing cold (it was apparently around -5°C), along with crisp blue sky and fantastic sunshine. During the night, the snowing stopped, the temperature, however, carried on dropping and made the trees and buildings look just beautifully frosty. I do not want you to miss out on these, so enjoy the rest of my photos (including the Shrewsbury sign which I captured on Friday night when I was riding home from work).
