Lighted windows


An iconic view of Saltaire's New Mill - one I have photographed (and shown on this blog) several times - but never before at dusk.  I think this time of year is good for catching lit-up windows. It's not yet dark early enough that people draw their blinds - and it's the golden glow of the windows in the Riverside apartments that really make this photo. Well, that and the red glow of Saltaire's only traffic light! (On the left, which stops people driving the wrong way up the narrow driveway beside the mill.)

  1. Despite the size of the building, it has a cosiness about it, with the windows lit.

  7. Beautiful reflection image Jenn. Does Saltair really only have one traffic light..I'll think about that when I'm stuck at one of the thousands in Perth haha!

    1. There is a set of pedestrian crossing lights on the busy main road at the top, but apart from that, no lights. You could still get stuck in a big traffic jam in the rush hour though, because of the roundabout at the top of Saltaire Road.
