At this time of year, as Autumn slides intractably into winter and the nights draw in, the nature of my cycling changes. Rather than the longer dayrides of the summer, I embark on shorter rides around more local haunts. The sunsets, twilights and night views provide different photographic subject matter to that of my summertime excursions. At this time of year I frequent Cannock Chase, central Staffordshire and the area to the east of Tamworth.
You may have noticed by now that I’ve got a bit of a fascination with Rugeley power station. I make no apologies for the fact that I find it beautiful and fascinating, particularly at night. The facility represents the triumphalism and scale of the post-war infrastructure boom of the fifties, and the scale and belligerence of the industrial design never ceases to leave me speechless. Visible for miles, I find it endlessly wonderful to photograph.
