Orange berries, grey door

I spotted another pale grey door, this time at the top end of George Street in Saltaire. Grey must be one of the Saltaire Conservation Area 'approved colours'. I have taken quite a liking to this shade. It looks really attractive with these orange berries draped around it. I think this plant is some kind of cotoneaster. It has so many berries - does that foretell a harsh winter? It looks quite Christmassy, doesn't it - and I suppose we should be turning our thoughts in that direction. Saltaire (thankfully) doesn't go in for Christmas lights strung up everywhere - but I hope to show you a few hints of Christmas from around the village in the next few weeks.


  1. What tremendous colours. The grey of the door and the brown of the stone act as perfect foils to those amazing berries.

  2. Not sure about the Old Wives' Tales, but who knows. The berry colours really come out well in this shot. Agree with you on the lights, if they are not done well they are awful.

  3. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

  4. Hi Jenny,

    Very beautiful!
    The old tale about the berries might be right. The same story goes here, and most of the time it turns out to be true. But this year however, I wonder-:)

    Best regards
