Ironbridge powerstation, the last night.
This image was taken at 5.00pm on 19th November 2015, the very last time that the Ironbridge cooling towers were illuminated and still generating power. The powerstaion was finally switched off at 2.33pm the following day. Love it or hate it, it has been part of the Shropshire landscape for as long as I can remember. Personally, depending on what the future holds, I will be sad to see it go as one of my most sucessful images "Power in the Mist", was one taken of the powerstation in 2010, winning an award in the prestigious Landscape Photograper of the Year competition.
