Towering majesty


This was taken in Saltaire a week or two ago, and the trees are showing more autumn colour since then.  I was enjoying the effect that a telephoto lens has in pulling things together so that everything looks connected.  Saltaire's Victoria Hall tower isn't really as close to those houses as it looks here.  But I like the combination of shapes.

  1. I like the effect, too. I'm on the verge of buying a 55-200mm lens for my Nikon D3000, and looking forward to using it.

  6. I like this, and the little touch of red in front of the house. Very pretty. On the question of getting work done with that York view to distract me, I don't always have that room, and in any case, had to lean out of the window for that shot - and more importantly, as my work there is one-to-one English language training there is no possibility of day-dreaming.
