Mirror, mirror

All through June and early July, we had some fabulous weather - a quintessential English summer. Temperatures in Saltaire have been pleasant, around 20-25℃; there was very little rain, light breezes. It has cooled off a bit now and become a lot more unsettled, with some heavier rainstorms. Obviously gearing itself up for the start of the school holidays this week! (That's the pleasure of being British - you can always be gloomy about the weather prospects.)

Such lovely evenings have enticed me into taking frequent evening strolls around my patch. The canal walk is always my favourite. I never cease to be thrilled by the amazing reflections when the sky is blue and the trees are green.

And this gives me the perfect opportunity to join in the Weekend Reflections, hosted by James at Newtown Area Photo. For more lovely reflections, from all over the world, click this link.

  5. Lovely - and such a typical West Yorkshire reflection. The price we pay for that greenery, however, is the rain which is falling as I write.
