One misty, moisty morning...

Another weekend of wintry weather - this time of the chilly, damp, foggy kind. The fog does produce some interesting effects, emphasising shapes and somehow having the effect of flattening perspective so that everything looks like a stage set. It gives Saltaire United Reformed Church the look of a Greek temple, with those huge Corinthian pillars looming up through the mist. Wouldn't it be a wonderful setting for an opera? (Wrap up warm though!!)

From opera to folk...The title "One misty, moisty morning.." suddenly came into my head - it was an old Steeleye Span hit in the early 1970s. So I just downloaded it from iTunes - ah, nostalgia!

  1. One can only hope it won't be too long before it will be in warm sunlight; although I see we have sleet today and more snow in the forecast.

  3. As soon as I read the title of this post, the same song cued in nicely. I saw Steeleye several times during the 70s. You may know the appropriately named album 'Below the Salt'.

    I really like the photograph, by the way. Very eerie.

  4. Very eerie indeed, superb photo. Jenny your blog is linked on another site and yesterday it had what appeared to be a restaurant in Saltaire but when I checked your blog I couldn't find it. Then this morning the title says 1 Albert Road but I cannot find that either. Very strange?
