HERE comes the sun. At least there are signs of it in this bright winter picture taken on the road high above Marsden.

Holme Moss, one of the highest routes in the area, remains closed and even in more recent days, the roads around Castle Hill have remained a tight fit for cars trying to pass.

The Standedge cutting above Marsden is the highest point of the A62, as it passes over the Pennines from Yorkshire to Lancashire.

Understandably it is often at the mercy of the elements but as this cyclist shows, when the sun comes out, it’s a great place to be out on the road.

This week’s picture was taken by Tony Quarmby who lives in Marsden and couldn’t resist getting his camera out on what proved one of the better days of recent weeks.

We always need submissions for Picture Of The Week.

So if, like Tony, your eye has been caught by a sunny view, a happy face, a community event or a beautiful building, then send in those images too.

We are always keen too to celebrate the town’s achievements, its spirit and its people.

So please get out the camera and share your view of what makes Huddersfield so special.

Send entries to or you can drop them in the post to Picture of the Week, Features, Huddersfield Daily Examiner, Pennine Business Park, Longbow Close, Bradley Road, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, HD2 1GQ.
