Another one of those shots that I’ve taken again and again and again, capturing it in all seasons, lights and conditions, in this case because it was on my commute for several years.

The BT tower on Pur Down, in the north of Bristol, a thin and increasingly isolated sliver of green space, once farmland, consumed and constricted and now cut off from the surrounding country by the growing city: one of those locations where you can pretend that the city isn’t there if you get the camera angle and conditions right.

When I returned that way a few weeks ago for the first time in five years, the microwave transmitters which were the original point of the tower had gone, like those on the BT Tower in London.
