Cooling Off

Paul Whittingham

Shrewsbury, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

In most cases you would have thought a coal fired power station situated within a beautiful tree lined gorge would be an abomination. Not so in Ironbridge, where strangely, the overbearing cooling towers somehow provide a link between the areas present; and rich industrial past.
I’ve knowingly broken every compositional rule here, but after trying a number of compositions and moving up and down the bank of the River Severn (in Shropshire) using differing lens combo’s and vantage points I eventually ended up back at this original spot. The symmetry of the reflections are what drew me to it, and I suppose this is hardly a classic landscape shot so the rules were ignored for a change.
