Sunset reflected


Another lovely sunset, this time reflected in the windows of one of the big semi-detached houses on Albert Road, Saltaire.  These houses were completed in 1868 and marked the final phase of the building of Sir Titus Salt's model village.  At that time, this road was the western boundary of the village and enjoyed an open outlook over the fields.  Since then a newer estate has been built opposite so they don't enjoy such lovely views, but it's still a good place to see the sun set.  For more Weekend Reflections, courtesy of James at Newtown Area Photo, click here.

(How annoying - Blogger has bullied me into using the new post editor and I can now only get the font size bigger or smaller than the old post editor made it.  I don't like either.  I liked it how it was before! Boo!)
PS Thanks to all those who have given me helpful hints in comments and emails on altering the font size.  I have experimented as suggested and changing the size in Design 'advanced' does of course change the font size.  But there is still a difference in size between posts composed using the old post editor (yesterday) and those composed using the new one (today's) even though both were composed with the font set to 12px.  I am getting used to the difference - it's only my personal preference, and a bit of a perfectionist streak!!

  2. Hiya Jenny,
    Can I help?
    I would need to see your previous template. You should be able to change the fontsize in the HTML.

    Like the sun reflected in your French doors.

  13. As for the font size - that's progress for you. Anyway forget about the font size : whatever size it is you know we will always read it. Your posts are always too interesting to miss,

  14. great sunset reflection. Go to "design" click on "advanced" and you can change the font size to whatever you want. It will not show on the editing page but it will show when you preview or publish. Hope this helps.

  17. Breathtaking shot! It's somehow so cozy, reflected in the window that way, surrounded by lavender. It's like you took the awesome power of the sunset and made it cute and bite-sized! I love it.
