That's so cool! My only criticizm is that maybe you could have (if there was a way) moved around closer to the drain and taken the picture so that all you could see in the image was the hole and the water surrounding it. But it's still a cool shot! Nice work!

@Rymerz Not really a good way to do a shot like that. The Chain-Link fence limits the photo opts. YouTube has some video. Auggee
