Moira Road, Donisthorpe
Moira Road, Donisthorpe
Taken from the crossroads between Church Street, Ashby Road and Measham Road. Somewhere along this road was a long line of terraced colliery cottages, since demolished probably due to subsidence and poor living conditions.

The image has been cropped to emphasise the dramatic slopes along this road. This, in addition to the handheld exposure during deep dusk and the f/1.4 aperture of a rather antiquated lens, creates a rather... dreamy image, to put it politely!
