Autumn views around Bradford
The Autumn season is hitting Bradford this year, here a peek at least year’s season. Autumn and Winter aren’t my favourite time to be outside, with it being cold! These two seasons often give the most dramatic light and wonderful colours though. Bradford has a pretty rep, for a whole host of things, but the beauty often seems to be forgotten.
Betty’s Wood is situated inside the 550 acre St Ives country park, currently owed by Bradford Council. The park has Grade II listed status, and is an accredited country park. The witch carving is to the bottom of the estate, which has been recently felled because of a disease.. The second image was created using the pixel stick, using a slow shutter and “painting” the carving, with a fire-esq light.
A early autumn evening visit to Saltaire, to capture some of the local landmarks. Saltaire is a Victorian Model Village, and is designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The majority of the original buildings have there own listed status, with the Saltaire United Reformed Church being given Grade 1 listed status. The main attraction in the village is Salts Mill, built in 1856, commissioned by Sir Titus Salt. The mill had the largest floor space in Europe when completed.
Bradford City Hall is a Grade 1 listed building, located in the heart of Bradford. Opened in 1873, and the clock tower is a prominent city centre feature.
