Facts about the image, Straw Bales by The Wrekin

Straw Bales by The Wrekin is an image created in the autumn of 2013 to the west of The Wrekin when all the cereal crops have been harvested and the straw baled up ready for collection and to be used as winter feed and bedding for the farm animals. The Wrekin is one of Shropshire’s most iconic hills being visible from both of the county’s largest towns (Shrewsbury and Telford) and has provided a challenge for painters and photographers alike who have struggled to capture its massive splendour due to its curvaceous shape which belies how big it is. Many artists and photographers have recorded The Wrekin from its southern aspect where it is a lot narrower which gives it the appearance of being taller but would include a series of overhead power cables crossing the image.

Shortly after making this image the farmer collected the straw bales leaving empty fields for ploughing and preparing the scene for the winter. By using a large format camera a 300mm lens could be used to capture The Wrekin giving it the appearance of being a major feature in the Shropshire Hills and befitting its status as an icon of the Shropshire landscape.
