I had the most tedious journey I??ve ever experienced up to Yorkshire today ?? it took me over nine and a half hours to drive three hundred miles. When I reached yet another traffic jam near Nottingham this afternoon I decided to take avoiding action and headed east towards Newark to join a different road, figuring that even if I was moving slowly I was at least making progress towards my destination. As I drove east from Nottingham I noticed these enormous power station cooling towers and couldn??t resist taking a brief detour to take a photo. They really are vast structures ?? to give you an idea of scale, the building at their base is East Midlands Parkway railway station which isn??t exactly tiny itself! Given that it was pretty overcast a gritty monochrome conversion seemed the best option to bring out the detail in the clouds and the steam emerging from the top of the towers.
