Steam and Sunset


Photo Information
While the Sun was sinking behind me, it was casting a light to highlight the cooling towers of Ratcliffe-on-Trent power station.

Trent Lock is an attractive spot nearby at the convergence of a number of canals, with barges and river birds to photograph.

However I seem to be drawn to industrial images. I think that the Tinsley Towers were a more attractive shape than these stubby ones.

Shot with K10D/18-55 as jpeg, then converted to mimic B&W with filter in Picasa.

I am trying (very hard) to show that I do take pictures of things other than steam trains!

Bit of a busman's holiday, isn't it?

The weekend after I bought my K10D, I photographed 18 planes in an hour (on a Sunday lunchtime) through my front bedroom window, but I was living very near to the incoming flight path for Manchester Airport.

Well I had to try out the camera on something!
