Ratcliffe Power Station

07th April 2015
Yesterday was the first time I have left the house pre-dawn with a camera for about six months (for reasons I will not bother with now).

I went to a location I had researched online using Google maps and The Photographer's Ephemeris near Ratcliffe Power Station. Fortunately I had done a recce' the day before as the intended route was subject to a 10mile plus diversion because of major road works. I doubt I would have found my way in the dark without the planning trip beforehand.

I left home in thick fog but it cleared to reveal a beautiful day being promised within an few miles - and returned to thick fog a mile from my destination! After standing round for nearly an hour I gave it best and went for a walk round; the sun was now high in the sky but I still could not see the power station for thick fog. Shortly afterwards the fog did clear and I got a couple of shots but with the sun now high in the sky and not what I had hoped for.

Another visit is called for.
