Warm glow

There was a lovely sunset over Saltaire last evening as I walked home from church. Luckily I had thought to take my compact with me - I always try to remember, because you never know what you might see. I liked the way the windows of Salts Mill were catching the light; it almost looked as though there was a fire inside. I'll post a picture of the actual sunset some other time - it will fit with Scott's 'Sunset Sunday' theme.

One thing I didn't manage to snap though was the steam train that went through Saltaire station just as I was passing! It went so fast - and, it has to be said, with very little steam - that I didn't even see or hear it coming until it flashed past. Some folk must have been expecting it, as there was a little knot of people standing on the bridge. I saw the warm glow from the furnace and it did leave a slightly smoky fragrance behind. I think the whole of Saltaire must have smelled like that most of the time in days gone by.

  2. This is a fine shot. To me, it looks like a piece of artwork, hung against a stone wall in a gallery, depicting different sunsets in panels.

  7. Beautiful picture!! I'm like Malyss, can't leave home without my camera and if I do, I feel as if I have left my arm at home with it!! The steam train would have been wonderful...even moving and/or blurry, but if you are like me, you didn't have your camera out and ready in time. Next invention, cameras built into our hands!! Like that the camera is always ready!!
