Clarence Space Dock

"There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

- Shakespeare's Hamlet


The skies have been a little grey over Yorkshire for the last couple of days, so I turned my idle imagination to another aimless Photoshop session. The scene in the foregound of this composition is that of Clarence Dock, a recently revitalised stretch of post-industrial waterway close to Leeds City Centre. The Mole and I passed through here on a quest to snap some motorway light trails a couple of months ago and got some nice pictures of the docks on the way home. Mill-pond conditions made the scene all the more atmospheric with glassy reflections of light emanating from the the still waters.


The starry sky in the background was once featured as NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day and consists of the Heart Nebula, a system some 7500 light years away from Earth. This particular capture is the work of astophotographer Rogelio Andreo - click here to have a look at some of the awesome gear he uses to shoot the night sky or go here to view more of his breathtaking nebula images.
