Landscape 77. April 1977. A small environmental comment on the tarmac plant at the edge of the meadows (the Hertford Meads) a few hundred metres from where I was living at the time. There's frost on the grass beside the River Lea at the left of the picture, and the whole thing looks pretty uninviting! Actually I used to walk here a lot, and got annoyed when the factory puffed out smoke and smells. It's still there. The original is not quite as grainy as it looks here, I must make a better copy. Industrial Sunset is a colour shot of the same plant.
