View towards Arundel, West Sussex at dawn, England, UK

I love the atmosphere on an early spring morning…there is still a chill in the air that will diminish as the sun comes up…and everything is fresh and new.

This is a view across farmers fields towards Arundel in West Sussex. Taken at dawn in spring, the Sun is just about to peep over the horizon to my right.

I couldn’t resist that smooth sky and those smoke stacks. It’s the scale that I like. I rarely come across industrial architecture like this, but would love to photograph it up close. This, however was a spontaneous moment and had no idea that these giant chimneys would creep into view.

This photo was taken on a cycling route created from the old Ashbourne Line, a railway track that connected the Derbyshire towns of Ashbourne and Buxton. The trail now runs through the hills of the Peak District National Park and it winds its way through the hills at a very flat gradient. The roads in the area are achingly steep if you are a cyclist….and so I am very glad that in the 1800′s it was decided to put a railway line here.

And so this is a view that would have been viewed on a daily basis by rail passengers from the late 1800′s onwards.
