I'm joining in Skywatch Friday this week - click here for more glorious global skies
Between Saltaire village and the nearest small town centre of Shipley, a distance of less than a mile (1.6 km) is a stretch of what I can only call 'urban corridor'. It's a fairly nondescript hotchpotch of blocks of flats, offices, small industrial units, a garage and a few pubs, shops and restaurants. Nothing special, not especially smart, just the kind of scene repeated in our towns the length and breadth of England. However, because the main road running through is quite wide, somehow what I always notice here is the sky. The other morning, as I walked to work, it was full of promise of the sunny day to come; something to feast on to sustain me through another day spent indoors.
