This is a very nice composition and a very interesting image to explore. I like it.
very interesting picture. I like this one. It's very neat. Is the snow already gone?
Really spectacular and beautiful photo, dear Marilyn ! My best wishes, Tamás
Nice engineering detail with a peek-a-boo landscape as a bonus! Well observed Marilyn.
Wondeful Marilyn. I like the offset point of perspective on this photo. I must open my eyes even wider. Mvh fra Norge. Amelia
Thank you, Lina, Larry, pingu, Tamás, Keith, and Amelia. I'm glad you share my interest in the rusty turbine.
The snow is not gone already. I took this on the first of November, before it came. There was a chain-link fence between me and the retired turbine, so I as restricted in photo angles, but nevertheless I took lots of pictures. I was slow in posting this because I had a hard time deciding which one I liked best.
One of your very original shots, Marilyn.I like it a lot.Very nice lights and shadows and the window, of course. Cheers, Daniela
A very interesting perspective, Marilyn. Wa sit inspired by circumstance or the release of the new James Bond flick? (Sorry, I couldn't help it).
Thank you, Daniela and Hank, with extra thanks to Hank for the morning smile.
It just occurred to me that this shot was made possible in part by the primitive nature of my equipment! The zoom on my ultra-zoom compact camera (aka "point-and-shoot" but I resist that classification) is so small that I can stick it out through one of the openings in a chain-link fence.
This is a masterful shot, Marilyn. You have used one of your motifs that I admire, the window, in a fresh and technically complex way.
Greetings from Miami,
You have the nead of a sparepart, then go to ....
Many thanks, Mary, for your comment. And yes, Rapid, they might have just what's needed!
We went for a drive along a road that was once very familiar to us. There used to be an interesting flume between the road and the generating station. It let logs bypass the station, but there is no more logging upstream, so the flume is gone. But what is there is this old turbine, just waiting for someone to come along and explore its photographic possibilities! Thus I feel little credit for the picture. All we had to do was notice it, stop the car, and walk along the fence!
Hello Marilyn ! Interesting subject and very nice photo, well done.
Hi again Marilyn.
I just had to come back and give this a Y*. You captured it very well.
While it is a technological manifestation, it has this organic quality to it that is very attractive to me.
Best wishes, Larry
Thank you, blai and Yves. I appreciate your comments.
Larry, I am honored by the Y*. I understand what you mean by organic quality, because the last time I looked at it, "flower" popped into my mind.
Best wishes, Marilyn
Yes Marilyn I'm sure it was there, just waiting for your creative eye to see it.
Greetings from Miami, Mary
Yes, they throw the old stuff away and wait for oxygen is doing the rest! ;-)
Ciao Marylin. Beautiful and orginal photo! Great idea. Luca, Italy.
