Thought it looked familiar! A nice subtle image of a not so subtle mix of industry and countryside. I like the almost monochrome impression.

There's something about the smoke in this photograph that I like - don't know if it looks warming on a cold morning, or if it signifies the intrusion of industry into this landscape? It certainly adds to the scene.

Thanks folks. Taken late pm yesterday it was the smoke I spotted - I just like the way the factory is swallowed up by the landscape but the smoke is caught by the light. I'm drawn to man's influence on the landscape - must get out more. Lots of cameras in evidence on Stanage yesterday, I know I've got loads of raw files to sort out today.

Good shot, the contrast of smoke and the dark hill in the background give it a sense of distance.

Good shot. This is will also be forever known as Genus from the ITV comedy "Dead Man Weds". Simon

The smoke from the industrial chimney actually features well and is strongly contrasted with the background detail. Nice exposure Tony.
