Walking in Roberts Park, Saltaire the other day, I was cheered by this glorious blue sky. The honeyed stone of Saltaire's buildings (in this case the New Mill) looks at its best against a clear blue. But I like the mix of different types of clouds - and the contrails. That is a small reminder that we are only a few miles from Leeds-Bradford airport, though the planes are usually high enough overhead here that they don't irritate with constant noise.
I thought this would be a good entry for Skywatch Friday - I've not joined in that one before, but it's always fun seeing what different people do with a theme. For the other participants in Skywatch Friday this week, click this link.
A few days ago I mentioned a new video about the restoration of Roberts Park. I've now discovered who made it: David Weber of Barleybrook Films - a Leeds-based company. They've also made a film called 'The Story of Saltaire' and one called 'Echo of the Stones' (about the mysterious house at Milner Field.) You can view clips on their website by clicking the title links. They are high quality, well made films, available as DVDs.
