photoblog image concrete rainforest, sunset

concrete rainforest, sunset

Following the pixelpixie's idea of getting you to guess the location, can you tell where this was taken- it is specially for the concrete lovers among you (who seem to all live in North West England!
I will post a picture of the exterior tomorrow which will show you instantly!

No idea where it is, but I do like it! I don't know if it's rain, or some post-processing, but it's very effective.
David from the Hebrides: Thanks, Steve- it's not rain, it's not post processing, it is a LOT of water falling, and very noisy too!
I think when i die this is what Heaven will look like.
This has got to be one of my favourite photographs.........ever!
For once i am at a loss for words!
David from the Hebrides: Heaven is in Padiham then! Thanks, Eddy!

wow, this one's really REALLY cool. is it some sort of pier? obviously, a big one, with a big buidling or boardwalk on it? i LOVE the shadows the columns are throwing off, makes it look like a monotone prism.
David from the Hebrides: Thanks, Alex- you will see the answer in a few minutes, so enough time to tidy your apartment a little? grin
Where have you been hiding this one! I am totally wowed!
David from the Hebrides: It's been in my "TV" files, as I took this while filming on location at this....grin
Looks like the inside of a cooling tower?

Concrete heaven indeed!
David from the Hebrides: You were the only one! Thanks, DC

speechless! mal
David from the Hebrides: Thank you, Mal- you certainly wouldn't have been able to hear yourself speak there!
Wow! brilliant photo. Wonderful light, pattern and shadows. The thumbnail caught my eye straightaway.
David from the Hebrides: Thank you, Morenike- the sun set two minutes later and it was all gone! smile

Supurb!
David from the Hebrides: Thanks, my friend- it's way past time for you to have your own stuff on show here!
Excellent shot David - love the shafts of light coming through the columns.
David from the Hebrides: Hi, Bernie- yes two minutes later the sun had gone and it seemed very grim! I had been filming there (it is a cooling tower at a power station) all day with the BBC.
I think I've been back 4-5 times now! What a conundrum. Now wanting to look like a complete banana, it couldn't be anything to do with the whisky distillation process could it? Not rain makes me think of water mills then again the huge scale of it makes me think of Wigan Pier - I've never been, it's just how I picture it in my imagination! Is it connected to Whisky? This is you most excellent so far!

David from the Hebrides: Much nearer (your) home, at Padiham- and you are only one letter too many- lots of STEAM! grin

sad I've never been to England so I have no idea. Looks like a pier? Great stuff anyway. smile
David from the Hebrides: We are just a short ferry ride away- come and see us! Thanks, Julischka
Therein hangs a tale: I was brought up by a family of trogladytes who became upwardly mobile & moved into a cooling tower. I was always fascinated by that distant circle of light above. I eventually crawled up into the light & have never looked back.
Soon after, a famous bloke from Bolton...Dibnah, I think his name was, razed it to the ground along my entire family!
Thank you for bringing back all those memories for me with your superb shot! smile
David from the Hebrides: Thanks, DC- I think a Dibnah-type-person did a number on this one too as it is now a field near Padiham! Just found an old strip of negs while doing the annual chuck-out and thought this was saveable! Glad I did- even Eddy wants a print for his concrete lovers files!!

Fantastic image - I was looking at this yesterday lunchtime, equally puzzled as many others above clearly were too, but equally in awe of this shot. Brilliant.
David from the Hebrides: Thanks, John- The sun only shone through here for a few seconds then it was grim, grey and noisy again! I only got into the power station as we were filming a drama there, so I don't suppose many people have seen all this condensing water under those enormous towers one sees everywhere!
Very nice atmosphere - Fine art....
Hi David, I'm catching up with your photos and this is one has to be my favorite. I love the contrast between the stark, angular pillars and that amazing soft light..Incredible shot! A geometry lover's paradise!
David from the Hebrides: Thanks, Suzanne- it was an overwhelming place to be- deafening noise and the sight of the huge cooling tower held up by these spindly posts, then the sun broke through for about thirty seconds- I was just lucky to be there!
