Samuri pylon herding cows in New Mills, Derbyshire. A comic allusion that can not pass without comment haha. Something about pylons has always intrigued me, possibly because I have a life long fascination with everything electrical but also there is a curious resonance with something primordial and universal in the environment. The universe of esoteric quantum energy, electricity and atmosphere, electricity weather and cosmic radiation. Pylons, or more specifically, the power lines they carry, do interact directly with this environment of esoteric energies. Solar storms, thunder storms and strange emanations from deep space all impinge on this expansive electrical network and impose measurable effects and changes on it.
The refinery at Stanlow – I like the way this image creates an interesting rhythm in shapes and lines and also a pleasing colour harmony. It was taken from a moving vehicle, moving at speed and I also like the effects that have resulted from this.
Stanlow refinery is one of the longest running oil refineries in the UK and quite a striking sight at night as virtually everything has lights on it.
