As I build up to my Crowdfunding appeal for my book of the Derwent Valley Mills, here’s one of my favourite images – showing Long Row Belper – which will definitely go in the book. I like the fact that it’s so timeless, having cropped at the bottom to hide the parked cars, and if I removed the aerials and turned it to black & white, it could have been taken 200 years ago. I did convert to mono but preferred the de-saturated look. It’s the clouds that make this image for me – you can’t beat big, fluffy clouds for drama and dynamism. ‘The ultimate art gallery above’ said Ralph Waldo Emerson.
