Morning light

At this time of year the early morning light can be fabulous (at least, when it's not raining, which it often is)....Though as I write that I am thinking, hmm, maybe it's fabulous all the year round - except that I don't often see it. It's just at this time of year that the arrival of daylight coincides with me walking to work. Anyway, one particular morning recently I took this photo of some of the old buildings by the Leeds-Liverpool canal, with Salts Mill and its chimney in the background. The sky was full of quite stormy clouds but the low sun found its way through, giving this real glow to the stonework. There is often a boat moored in this spot, as it is one of the designated overnight moorings - and that just adds to the charm.

  3. You got the light absolutely right. Timing was good as that kind of light can disappear so quickly. Warm light on those bricks works well.

  8. It is quite nice. I prefer morning and late afternoon light if I have a choice. You have a very nice blog and your photos are very good.

  9. The light is gorgeous and it's a fine composition. I've know about Saltaire for many years but haven't visited. If I ever make another trip to England Saltaire will be on the itinerary.

  10. What a great photograph. You've captured the moment superbly. I wish I could take more photographs in the early morning and late evening light but I have one major problem and that is I cannot drive. Love your blog, keep up the grand work.
