A touch of autumn
Our weather is very Octoberish, though much warmer than is seasonal. Mornings of mist, dull dank damp days and an occasional outburst of exuberant blue sky and sunshine. You can see from this shot the gradual autumnal colour creeping into the trees. For newcomers to my blog, the building is the huge Salts Mill, opened in 1853 by the Victorian paternalist Sir Titus Salt as a mill to produce fine wool worsted cloth. He then proceeded to have an entire village - Saltaire - built around it, to house his workers. Regular readers have seen many views of the building (for more, click the Salts Mill label) but I hope that you don't tire of its industrial grandeur. I never do, though I see it every day.
