Skywatch Saltaire

There have been some dramatic skies in the last few days over Saltaire - that lovely combination of sunshine and rainclouds that is so characteristic of April in England. (OK, it's May now, I do know that!) I took this scene from my own doorstep. It's more or less the view I get from my bedroom window when I'm sitting up in bed. The window faces east and I do love those weekend mornings, when I can open the curtains a little and enjoy the sunshine streaming in. Time to gaze at the sky, watch the busy birds and contemplate the beautiful trees. I relax against the pillows, hugging a mug of tea and planning how to fill the precious weekend hours. It's lovely to ease into a new day like that, instead of leaping out of bed at the behest of the alarm clock.

  3. Absolutely! One of my favorite things is the fact that our bedroom has three big east facing windows. Such a good way to awaken!

  4. What a lovely first view to wake up to. I love the combination of the highlights and the low lights in this image. Prettiness with a touch of drama! ~Lili
