After we set the clocks back to GMT at the end of October, it seems that it very quickly starts to get dark by about 4pm. The effect is exacerbated by all the gloomy weather we've been having: drizzle and fog. Some days it hardly seems to get light at all. After a day spent doing errands and boring chores, I decided a short walk was necessary, to stretch my legs and clear my head. Sometimes you just have to ignore the damp and gloom. The school and college students were making their way home so there were plenty of people about and the lights in the shops and offices did lend some warmth and cheer to the scene.

Familiar scenes are rendered differently in the dark... The New Mill (below) was ablaze with light. This end of the mill is now offices for the Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust, the body that has responsibility for local community healthcare and for those who have mental health needs and learning disabilities. I'm not sure why the frontage is floodlit in red and purple but it makes it stand out.
I'm not so fond of the colourful effect from across the river, nor does the scaffolding enhance this iconic view.
