M60 at Littlemoss


As I'm away for a while, Pamela from Tenerife is posting a series of photographs from the environs of Hyde rather than the town itself.

Littlemoss lies on the road from Droylsden to Daisy Nook. Above we see the northbound M60. This was the last section of the Manchester Orbital Motorway to be completed. Protestors were camped out in trees at Littlemoss for several weeks.

Below you can see how it looked under construction in 1999.

The sprawl of roads on the landscape is an ongoing development world wide. Of course they are very useful to get to places quicker. I must admit, that I don't find them to be photogenic subjects but maybe I can reconcile my lack of love for them with the thought that they can take me to photo destinations more effectively.
