“No swimming or unauthorised boating”: the frozen reservoir

Another taste of winter: this time it’s Blackstone Edge Reservoir. Partially frozen and dusted in snowy tiger stripes, the cold expanse of water lies under a sky lit by the major urban areas around: Rochdale, Burnley, Halifax and Huddersfield. I stood on the edge of Turvin Road, under this signpost and tried to avoid car headlights in the long exposure time needed to capture the soft light. After a while I gave up and let this driver light up the view.
