...I thought my winter morning view was destroyed for good when they built this chimney. The rising sun turned the steam to red and I had my view back, thank you Mother Nature yet again.

Creating beauty from an eyesore. The camera can do that. Unfortunately it doesn't work as well in real life...

By sitting well back and closing my eyes to tiny slits I can just make out a mountain landscape, not quite Vesuvius or the Buachaille mind you. . . . .

Marvellous what you can capture from your own window, it's just being there are the right time and ready to shoot.
Despite the warmth of the scene, I bet it was very nippy on the other side of the glass though, Dougie.

A fine morning sky there Dougie, good use of the smoke/ steam to add interest

I love this image to bits, the black silhouettes working quite beautifully with the immense orange burning sky.

Quite a minimal image Dougie, relying on colour and shape to work. And, by gum, it works.

it's burned all the leaves off those trees Dougie but at least it's left you with and interesting view some of the time.

The skeleton trees stand out well against the sky Dougie - and that old chimney and its smoke work well.

Nature can be cruel but when she provides light and colour that make the sense reel we always forgive.

Mother Nature has a way of fighting back Dougie, the chimney has worked out for the best on this occasion. Hope you are well my friend, Bill.

Around the Peak District, the cement works at Castleton perform a similar function. To say that an industrial pile such as a cement works could be considered an eyesore, it is probably more photographed than Pevril Castle on the hillside above.
