Sunbeams burst through a fracture in the clouds over RSPB’s Leighton Moss nature reserve at Silverdale, Lancashire and throw the trees in the foreground into stark, black silhouettes: off in the far background can be seen Heysham, with its huge National Grid wind turbines jutting skyward and both Heysham 1 and 2 nuclear power stations bulging up from the horizon between the trees in the distance.

*Shot on a Canon 600d 18mp dSLR using a Sigma 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6 DC lens with settings at ISO-200, aperture at f/4.5, spot metering mode and an exposure time of 1/4000 seconds*
