Tabbed information for art piece

Fullmoon@Ribblehead Darren Almond

This is one of a series of photographs produced by Darren since 1998. The images are taken at different locations during a full moon with a long exposure of 15 minutes or more. Darren took this photograph at the Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle railway. The night mail-train from Scotland is lit only by the moon and cuts through the misty landscape to create an unearthly scene. The photograph has a particular clarity and colour – only the atmospheric lighting and quietness suggest it was taken at night.
