When Norwich Became Narnia
Today spring is most definitely in the air. The birds are singing, the sun came out this morning, and the snow is receding. The snow has been wonderful, but it’s time for a new season now, and I feel like a new page is turning. A new chapter is beginning!
I do however have to share these photographs with you before we put this snowy week behind us. For a few hours on Wednesday morning, Norwich turned into Narnia, and I was lucky enough to see it in it’s silent, snow dusted glory. There is a window, just after fresh snow has laid, that is really quite magical. Before people try to go about their business and before cars get stuck. When the air is heavy with silence, and the snow squeaks when you walk through it.
A Winter Wonderland…
On Wednesday mornings the children are still at their dad’s, so I took advantage of this and was out the door at 7.30am. I took my Olympus Pen, as it’s nice and small, and I’m glad I did as the snow was falling heavily and it was almost blizzard like. As a result, some of the photos I took look fuzzy with snow, and my camera kept getting wet which made it all bit tricky! But it was really good to challenge myself, as I’d love to start taking more photographs of Norwich.
So as you can see, this post is picture heavy! I took a route down through Cathedral Close, down Tombland, up Elm Hill and back down again. Over the little bridge next to The Ribs Of Beef pub, and back round the back of the cathedral. It all felt very magical and there was defiantly a Narnia vibe in the air. Elm Hill looked like something from Harry Potter!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour of Norwich. I am patiently waiting for the spring blossom and magnolia to adorn the city, and once again I will head out with my camera.
In case you missed my magical Red Riding Hood post from Friday night, you can find it here.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, or have a wonderful Monday if you’ve already embarked on the new week!
