The Gallery - Outside my Front Door

Time to make my gallery post for Tara's Weekly Gallery, which this week is entitled Outside my Front Door.

So outside my front door this morning it is tipping it down with rain and howling a gale. But on summer evenings, living on the west coast of the UK, I get to see the sunset from my living room window. I hover about by the window to see what colour the sky is changing to. If it's something pretty, I grab my camera and head down the road to the river, which is literally 3 minutes drive away so I can grab a photograph.

This is one of my favourite sunset photographs because it's not your usual sunset shot, but the powerstation and bridge are a huge feature in my area. Amazing really that something so ugly can be made to look a bit more acceptable when the sun goes down behind it.

  4. Ooh that IS gorgeous - something quite peacful about a power station in the dark with nature lighting it up :) Anytime I try to capture ones up here they are belching out smoke and look industrial and downright evil - which can also be strangely beautiful I suppose!
