Pensford Railway Viaduct in North Somerset, now disused as part of the Bristol to Radstock Line. I think the last of the Radstock Coal Mines closed in the 1960’s along with the railway line that took the coal to Bristol docks.
It was a bit misty this morning so I ventured out as this is only ten minutes in the car from home.
I was interested in the shape of the car tyres in the foreground and the underside of the viaduct arches.
Compositionally this fulfils the golden rule for the use of a wide-angle lens – fill the foreground with something interesting. My 12mm lens is about 6″ away from the car tyres.
I am thinking about Bill Brandt type shots for an up and coming exhibition in May so there may a theme occurring on the blog.
