Golden light on the URC


I seem to make a habit of photographing Saltaire United Reformed Church from the canal towpath somewhere between Christmas and New Year. The light is always tricky, as this is the north side of the church so it is backlit by the low sun. The main advantage is that the ice-cream boat that is usually moored right at this spot and (for me) spoils the view, is moved for a few weeks in the low season, leaving the scene to be enjoyed as a very picturesque part of our village. There are still a lot of fallen beech leaves on the lawns and they add a lovely russet glow.

  1. That's a lovely photo of the church. And I can see that an ice-cream boat, though a welcome sight in summer, would do nothing to enhance the winter scene.

  2. Beautiful photo. The church has a Sphinx mystery to it the way the dome is over the portico with the building resting behind it.

  6. Great fun to see the contrast between this amber glowing shot and the snowy one just a week later.
