I particularly like the first image, great sense of space, and processed to great effect.

I did a bit of googling to find what these sculptures are and the story behind them. Quite fascinating.

Thank you Peter, Ben, Robbie, Stuart and Serge for your kind words.

Peter - Did Google tell you they are on the site of the Consett Iron Company's Rolling Mill. At 14 years old we were taken on a school visit and it was the most frightening place I'd ever been in. Almost pitch black, smoke and steam billowing every where, incredibly noisy, with red hot glowing steel flying up and down the mill. What made it worse was the guide pointing up to bits of contorted steel wrapped around the rafters saying, "That's what happens when it goes wrong"

It was quite pleasant up there yesterday but I don't think the drama of that visit was lost on me nearly 60 years later.

Yes it did, and I also learnt a new word.... "theodolite" !!

Dramatic skies, nice compositions, and a great contrasty chrome look - super little set
