Liquid gold


I'm desperate to replenish my stock of photos to post on my blog - running really low since I've been otherwise occupied.  I set out at 'the golden hour' to see what there was to see in Saltaire... but, before I'd got very far, the sun had slid behind a bank of clouds and that was that!  I did, however, catch this window in Salts Mill reflecting the golden stone, made warm in the evening light.  The original old Victorian glass is so flawed that it looks more like a reflection in water than glass.  This was a window in Sir Titus Salt's former office annexe.  He must have had a romantic and rather soft-focussed view of his creation through that window!

This is my contribution to Weekend Reflections - click here to see thumbnail pics of the other entries; there are always some great images.

  2. This window reflection was well worth the journey out. There is just so much to do in the spring that it leaves little time for photography and blogging.

    I know the feeling of venturing out to take pictures & suddenly everything seems to disappear.
    You did get lucky capturing this one though.

  14. This one made the trip worthwhile. I have some trips when I come back with nothing and others when I have so many I want to show that I can't decide. You never know when you start a walk or even when you push the shutter button.

  15. It just goes to show, you just never know what you're going to find to capture. I just love the wavy texture of old windows and it sure does lend itself to a beautiful golden reflection. Very nice! ~Lili
