A wrought iron Victorian canal bridge
Nature and industry collide in colour
The 62-year-old amateur photographer, from Burbage, captured the image from the footpath by the Grand Union Canal, near the King Power Stadium.
It is the latest entry in our Old and New photography contest.
Alan, who is retired, said: “I’d just bought a new Nikon 5100 and went for a walk early one Sunday morning to try it out when few people were around.
“I came across this scene thought it would make a great picture.”
The photo, taken six months ago, is actually three photographs, taken with different exposures, merged into one.
“It has the effect of making the foreground and background equally clear, seeing the scene as your eye would,” said Alan.
“I thought the contrast of nature and industry, decline and progress, all captured in the frame, worked.”
The closing date for entries is November 18, with £100 of Jessops vouchers up for grabs for the winner.
