Born in Canterbury, Kent, in 1971, I have always been surrounded by beautiful countryside and varied and diverse coastline. Photography has become an outlet for expressing my love for the region.

    One word for this image Stuart……. (drum roll)…… HUGE!
    These cooling towers are MASSIVE and yet they look very small in this shot. The expansive sky dwarfs these giants. A wonderful perspective.

    Brillant I agree with Andrew, towers like these are huge yet amongest the clouds they look insignificant a stunning capture Stuart.

    As long as you forget about the environmental thing-
    power-plants can really look beautiful, your photo proves it! The red soil and the dark blue sky make it look like something out of an advertising brochure, somewhere in a tropical land.

    You’ve got a lot of good work here Stuart, but this one really caught me eye. There’s always something a little “extra” about a work that uses something that most people would see as mundane and not give a second glance.

    This pic was taken not very long ago, as I seem to detect the workings where there is a railway station being built by the cooling towers, which is currently a ‘work in progress’, and in my opinion, something of a white elephant.
    Once again, a stunning skyscape, beautiffully handled.
