Taken a couple of weeks ago (before it snowed!) Tee hee! You'd have laughed, watching me trying to take this! I have long been convinced that there is a good photo to be had by framing Saltaire's famous United Reformed Church in its own wrought iron gates. It's not the easiest project. For one thing the gates are often open and I would not like to be caught closing them without permission. But it's a tricky prospect mainly because of the contortions I have to get into, to get the framing right. There are two gates, so neither of the round holes shows the church exactly in its centre when viewed square on. Standing up I'm too high, kneeling down I'm too low - so I have to adopt a very awkward and unbalanced twisted half-crouch... must look hilarious. This was hand-held but even with my tripod, I doubt I could get it to the right height. I've tried once or twice to do this - this is my best effort so far.
