My Sunday Photo – 22/11/2015

I am linking up this week to My Sunday Photo with OneDad3Girls with this photo;

DSC_5740b

ISO 200, F11, 1/60th exposure

This weeks photo is still along the same lines as last weeks. Yesterday Ironbridge Power Station closed down, its now began its 15 month decommissioning before demolition. It was quite a sad day, knowing I shall never see the steam from these towers again in a morning and that one day these towers will be completely missing from the scenery.

After spending 2 weeks trying to get ideal weather for a decent photo session of the power station yesterday finally provided ideal conditions. Late afternoon, just before sunset I captured this.

    this is a really well done shot. i love the different light, with the sun and the shadows. the way the trees frame the power stations is very effective too.

    So sad to hear they’ll be knocked down. There’s something beautiful about them

    Beautiful photo and well with the wait. My brother works at the one in ratcliffe, not sure what they plan to do there when they close them all?

    Wow what a great capture, I love how the pots are framing them. That’s a huge shame. To think they’ll be missing from the skyline is a shame #mysundayphoto

    So sad that our industry is gradually being eroded away and that our future generations will have no physically reminder of these amazing structures. Great shot! #mysindayphoto

    It is very sad. I used to play football right by them and it’s always a common sight when travelling to the in laws

    Fantastic! You’ve framed it perfectly with the trees. It will be weird removing something so dominant from the landscape!

    Great photo, really well framed and one to keep. I grew up not too far from Didcot Power Station and that recently had the same fates. #MySUndayPhoto
