Big thanks to @londonviewpoints for sharing this gorgeous shot of @intutraffordcentre in all its multi-column glory! Rococo/late baroque in design, it’s claimed that The Trafford Centre’s middle dome is bigger than that of St Paul’s Cathedral!

We’re re-living moments from the Chinese New Year parade today with a collection of beautifully vibrant images from: @only.ange, who captured eagerly awaiting crowds and freeze-framed energetic moments (images 1 and 2); @mjpthe3rd, who shared an attendee's hand-clapping joy (image 3); and 3)  @meetmanchester (image 4), who took part in a dragon photoshoot!

What is more brilliantly contrasting than a moody-skies backdrop sliced through by bright light, topped off by a rainbow?! Aerial photographer @spanningthebeyond captures our weather variants brilliantly with this shot over neighbouring Dovestone Reservoir. On the Pennine Bridleway, and with over 500 recognised climbing posts, plus an area from which to spot peregrine falcons, Dovestone Reservoir is an excellent spot on the edge of the Peak District to head to for a visit!

Who has been?

We’re going all sugary-sweet with today’s Valentine's-looking treat, coming to you from @rxtheatre with this bright snap from @rogerth4t, its colourful interiors in stark contrast to its Grade II listed, early 20th century Classical-style exterior!
.

Did you know @rxtheatre is the largest Theatre in the round in the country, with a capacity of 750? Seated across 3 levels, the theatre is suspended from the ceiling by 4 columns thanks to its weight - a hefty 150 tonnes!

What contrasts can you think of to showcase from the city and Greater Manchester? Architecture, colour, city and countryside - think outside the box!

We love this beautiful, winter-tones shot of @ntdunhammassey that @adamrobphoto shared this past weekend - creepy never bothered us, Adam!
.
Have you visited Dunham Massey? At 7 acres, its Winter Garden is the largest of its kind in the UK, flourishing throughout the season thanks to thousands of bulbs that bloom in the chilly climate, encouraging early forage for bees!

It’s a brand new week, the weather is on our side, and we're back with a brand new 'Best of'. This week we're showcasing ‘Best of contrasts’, and what better way to do so in the city than with architectural contrasts like those which @heldenwetter found on her recent visit?! Can you name the street that this was taken on?

@tatewright_photography captured a wonderfully wintry shot of Saddleworth Viaduct in Uppermill, home to the Saddleworth Museum and Gallery, which tells the story of “the people who created Saddleworth’s landscape and character”. Originally built to aid the transportation of goods during the Industrial Revolution, the viaduct has 23 arches, 3 of which are ‘skew’ arches, built at an angle at the viaduct’s crossing over the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.
.
Have you taken a walk along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal?

We’ve another sneaky, ‘where could it have been taken?!’ shot of the city today, thanks to @lukeyd23’s town hall spying!

Where’s your favourite spot in the city to eye-spy city architecture from?

@oldfashionedsus is ticking all the fairytale boxes with this beautiful shot of Rapunzel-esque hidden (by greenery) gem, Abney Hall!
.
The former home of Agatha Christie’s brother-in-law, and once Manchester mayor, Sir James Watts, Christie was so taken by Abney Hall that she used it as inspiration for the setting of Styles Court in her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles!

When we talk about hidden gems, we aren’t just talking about places but spaces, too, and unexpected viewpoints...something @northern.lens know all about from their Manchester wanders!

NEW! Best of hidden gems.
.
Venture beyond the city and you could find yourself in company of one of many charming hidden gems such as that of Walkden Gardens’ dovecote, which once stood in the grounds of the now-demolished Sale Old Hall.

BEST OF HIDDEN GEMS

We’re launching something new today, and introducing the FIRST of our ‘Best of’ themes, to inspire you to get involved and help us showcase Greater Manchester!

Have you ever found yourself wandering a street, only to look up and find a never before seen facade? Turned a corner to discover a tucked-into-it creation, or stumbled across an unexpectedly-found cafe?

If so, we’d love for YOU to share your ‘Best of hidden gems’ with us!

Use #BestOfMCR or #BestOfGrMCR for the chance to be featured, mention 'hidden gem', and don’t forget to tag us so we can find your photo!
