This is the steel and concrete tower of a foot bridge rising up out of the tree line and forming a giant letter A. The shot was taken in the midday sun with a blank, featureless and bleached out cloudy sky. I wasn’t sure I could make the shot work at all but by exposing for the sky and knocking it back a stop I managed to get enough detail in the clouds and trees to be able to retain enough detail in both. I ran it through adobe and a couple of graduated filters to really pop the clouds out and the details in the foliage to make a nice moody image.
Taken near Stockley Park, London on July 5th 2012
