This print is of the water take-off tower of Craig Goch dam in the Elan Valley. It depicts the dam at last light on a snowy day, when the colours of the landscape were very muted and almost monochrome.
It is a limited edition, original print created using linseed oil-based inks from a hand-carved linoleum block. In the reduction technique the block is re-carved, inked and printed a number of times to create the final image and is destroyed in the process.
