I went out very early today for my first attempt at this subject but unfortunately I think it was too misty. Hopefully I'll have time for another attempt but I will bank the best result from this morning just in case I can't do any better.

I did though get a nice shot of the sun coming up which you can see here

Very nice sunrise Glyn.

I am intrigued where your industrial landscape is on the Surrey / Hampshire border - not that far from me

You will have to wait and see

I think though you are quite correct in that its not an easy place to find an industrial landscape and I'm sure I'm probably pushing my luck .

I also learnt today that finding an industrial landscape is only half the problem. You also need to find it in the best weather and lighting conditions. I always used to think that the best landscapes were obtained at dawn or dusk but having got up at 5:30 this morning and cycled over into Hampshire I found that this is not always true .

Better conditions today.

But just for fun here is yesterday's best attempt in the early morning mist:

I had forgotten about Farnborough Airport

I can see why you waited for better conditions.

Is this a landscape or architectural?

I'd be interested in the answer as well - why not ask Stefan the same question as he won't be reading this thread now.

Doug pointed me this was for an question.

Doug, your shot will do fine so don't worry, as long as an area and but most importantly industry is central in your photo it will be good.
For example this shot would also be fine link
But also something like this link
Or walk into your office with an wide angle and take a shot of everyone working or something like that.

Rules are there to be broken and I'm very easy with them but don't come with a portrait or something like that.

If anyone feels they are cheated what I said now please say so but give me a note since I shouldn't be looking here

For the shots that are submitted now all are good although Bforbes is on the edge of acceptable for my taste since the shot is to focused.
If you want to change Bforbes let me you've my permission to do so, since I wasn't that clear maybe.

Thanks Stefan, its all industrial and part of a world heritage area. http://www.cornish-mining.org.uk/story/history.htm Wherever there's a mine in the world, there's probably a Cornishman at the bottom of it.

The mining in Cornwall shaped the industrial revolution and has left its impact all over the world.

Come on an interior office shot is not a landscape - well it is if you say it is but that does mean I can go into a factory and if they'll let me take a shot.

As an aside I wish I could go into one of my clients factory and take a shot of the linear welder they have there. It is stunning, almost the size of a small house. An amazing piece of kit which they keep under some wraps as it is truly ground breaking.

The second aside is that I went to a place locally to take a suitable shot only to find it was covered by the official secrets act and in fact was clearly once a gun emplacement guarding the larger part of the site so that was a non starter!

Yes sorry Mike the word Landscape wasn't fully correct but in a way you can make landscapes in the woods so why can't you make industrial-scapes inside a factory?

Well Mike if you shoot from a public road you should be safe

This my last post here and won't look again so note my if there are problems.

You'd not be safe against the official secrets act, this is one of those sites that was left off the ordnance survey maps.
