photoblog image One for Eddy

One for Eddy

On the same strip of negatives as a previous posting, I thought I should rouse EddyRhead again! This is a sunset seen through the condensed water falling  underneath a huge cooling tower at a power station.

I just have to cast my eyes upwards to see the other one hanging on my wall! It inspires me everyday and when you reach the Pearly Gates and St Peter asks what you have done to deserve entry just point him in the direction of my front room.
Im roused!
David from the Hebrides: This one is not quite as good as the first, but I had to rouse you- we need your oblique inputs to keep us (in)sane!
This is a very cool shot.
David from the Hebrides: Thank you Martin!

As EddyRhead says, this has taken me straight back to your archive shot, which itself was excellent, and this is just as good, if not better in its own right. Best shot on SC today by a long stretch.
David from the Hebrides: Many thanks John!

Awesome, very haunting, AWESOME, sorry I have already said that :d
David from the Hebrides: Well thank you Suby- I only had a few seconds to grab this- glad it was worth it!
Just as good if not better that your previous shot, David.
David from the Hebrides: Thanks Bernie- I slightly prefer the other, but concrete fetishists may prefer this!
This is a very powerful image - you almost expect some tiny alien figures to appear in the background! Beautiful light and very strong composition. How did you manage to get inside the cooling tower of a power station?
Ingrid
David from the Hebrides: Thanks Ingrid- My "day job" is a production designer in television, and I was filming a drama series that needed a power station as a location! I'm thinking of blogging stills from the many wierd and wonderful locations my work has taken me to, once I can get them scanned in- they are nearly all on film.
Excellent image David. Takes me back to working for a living! I know cooling towers only too well. I can hear the deafening noise of the cascading water and the roar of the fans again - and that background odour of chlorine. Nice one!! David.
David from the Hebrides: It was a great location to film in and you are so right- what a noise! There seem to be less of them now- do they do things differently now? This one has been pulled down.
This is gorgeous. The light is amazing. (:o)
David from the Hebrides: Thanks Rosalyn- I only had a few seconds window of opportunity as the sun set- glad I was there!

I really love the light here, and the vertical uprights fading into the light are just something else. I'm not desperately keen on the slanting support or the dark right hand side though, and I'm wondering if it would have been possible to get the shot from just beyond the slanting one, making more of an abstract.

Ah, well there you go... I was just having a scout through your archive to see which one Eddy was referring to, and I found it on 11th April. And yes, that's pretty much the view that I was visualising when I made those comments above!

Not only that, but I see I was the first one to comment on it too. I can't conciously remember seeing the shot before, so it begs the question - was I visualising it anew, or was it coming from my subconcious?

'Dave, my mind is going'
David from the Hebrides: An excusable senior moment, but you still have the vision! Thanks for searching Steve!
