One of the interesting things about exploring the roof space in Salts Mill (see here) was being up close to the 'twin towers'. I have shown several photos of these from the ground (see here and here) as they rank as one of my favourite bits of Saltaire. There is just something about them that I love... it's the symmetry, the colour of the stone against the sky and, above all, how they look different in different lights and weather conditions. And looking through the rooflights they look different again. You can see the weather vane in detail from up there. And this photo is typical of the weather we've been having! Dull, grey, drizzly, misty - very autumnal. This is a monochrome photo but the original version didn't have much more colour.
