Saltaire's historic church


The same frosty, misty morning as in the previous post supplied this photograph of Saltaire's URC church, from the towpath of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.  I know I've posted pictures from roughly this spot before (see here and here ) but I really enjoy seeing familiar places in different lights and weathers.   In the winter too, when the trees are bare, you can see much more of the church and fully appreciate its unusual design.

  2. Nice light and composition. You are clever to get nice shots on drab days.

  3. There is nothing wrong with returning to the same muse. I keep returning to a farmhouse on the far side of Huddersfield, taking shot after shot. I just know there is a good photograph there - one day I will take it.

  8. It's a beautiful capture Jenny - postcard perfect. - I can understand how artists like Monet painted a series of the same subject to capture the changing effects of light - swapping canvases as the day progressed. The same with us photography lovers.

  9. Every time you see it, it is different. The Monet haystacks comment above is right. And, one of my favorite CDP blog series is from Steffe in Haninge, who has shown a single old tree in different seasons and different lights for 4 - years. Today's photo is wonderful, as are the two shown in your links.

  10. Not only the church is beautiful but also the location is fantastic and the snow adds much to the photo.

  11. Familiar locations can show themselves in completely different tones and moods in the changing seasons. Lovely!
