An early start to capture this photo, but worth the effort, I hope you agree. During late September 2011 the weather was particularly warm producing some lovely clear skies. Thankfully the good weather held out until the weekend when I had time to get up at 5:45am and go walking with my camera. I find it fascinating that something as ugly as a power station can actually be quite atmospheric in the right lighting conditions.
I took this whilst out shooting photos for my photography project. I had taken all the photos that I needed for the day so I decided to take some just for me. The sky was perfect, crystal clear (and freezing cold) but as the sun set I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the city.
This photo was taken on the Oxford Canal just outside Rugby. I took this photo as part of a planned submission to a local competition for entries for next year’s Rugby Art Gallery calendar. I’m delighted to say that this particular photo was chosen for the month of July!
This shot was taken in Newbold Tunnel, which guides the Oxford Canal out of Rugby. I was experimenting with shooting in darkness and using white balance with my little Canon compact camera – the results were however surprising. The way the tunnel lights reflect off of the water produces a wonderful effect. This photo was also chosen to be part of the Rugby Art Gallery’s calendar for the month of October!
