The View From The Summit Of Brodsworth Community Woodland

The summit's not very high, it's a landscaped colliery spoilheap. It does have extensive views though, from nearby Brodsworth Hall, to the Aire Valley power stations, dozens or maybe hundreds of wind turbines both near and far, the tops of the chimney and cooling towers of Keadby Power Station next to the River Trent near Scunthorpe, and finally, the winding gear of Harworth Colliery in Nottinghamshire.

The photographs feature subjects much closer than the buildings on the distant horizon; lighting conditions were pretty good for an hour or so before it started raining and we retreated to the snooker hall at Woodlands for a couple of games of pool.
