Later in the day I ventured back outside to find everywhere covered in a wonderfully fresh, thick blanket of snow. This is the lock at Gauxholme: the footbridge afforded a good view of the lock gates and road bridge, lit in that odd transitory glow of dusk.

Under Tinsley Viaduct, near Meadowhall, Sheffield
Had to shoot this spot when i saw it: it represents much of what fascinates me about the post-industrial landscapes of the north. It’s a confluence point for transport throughout the ages: the canal and river running parallel to each other, the double deck viaduct of the M1 above, and some reasonable graf on the far bank. Love the contrast of light and shade, natural and man-made objects, and the unexpected tranquility of the scene.
