Over the next few days, I'll take you on one of my favourite walks, enjoying some lovely spring sunshine. I actually took the photos three weeks ago but haven't had time to post them. We have a few more leaves on the trees now due to the recent rain and then sunshine.
The walk starts here, on the canal towpath, just beside the Victoria Road bridge, with a view that I never tire of - Saltaire's historic United Reformed Church. On this particular morning the sun was striking the scene in such a way that I suddenly noticed how the strong shape of the tree finds an echo in the pillars of the church's portico. Funny how you can look at a scene again and again and still find something new in it.... I rather like the juxtaposition of natural and man-made sculptural forms.
The keen-eyed might spot the greylag geese and their current flock of goslings on the lawn. I counted nine little fluffy ones then. There were at least 24, all of different sizes, yesterday!
