Best regards, Timo

HI Neil, great evening capture, like for the photo not for the neverending smoke :). cheers K@rin

Hi there Karin,my thanks to you as always.That smoke/steam is neverending,but if that went so would a lot of jobs.

Cheers to you too...Neil.

Superb industrial landscape Neil..It must be seen at maximum zoom to appreciate the content and clarity..

Si was tagging such plant as Grim Places, which it most certainly is ;>) but very photogenic under these light conditions..Nice job Neil!!

PS. having worked in the thick of all that plant when serving an apprenticeship with ICI in the late fifties/early sixties, and later as a safety manager in the late eighties, (I must have taken leave of my senses) I still wake up in the night, sweating with fear. I hated every minute of it ;>)


Neil Grimwood on January 17, 2011

Eyup Jim, I thank you kind sir!! Aye, its grim alright,i was in Terylene 1966,only lasted 9 months,bloody near killed me. Hot conditions and shift work didn't suit me at all.But yes, it can be a good subject for us lads,thanks for calling in Jim.
