This is the pipeline. It's a walking path along the river that runs under a train trestle in downtown Richmond.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005531.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005531.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

You get to it by going down a short ladder

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005532.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005532.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The first part has a catwalk over the pipeline

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005535.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005535.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

But after awhile, you are walking on the pipe itself

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005533.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005533.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005534.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005534.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

If the river is high -- it covers the pipeline

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005538.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005538.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The river, as seen from the pipeline, on a high water day

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005539.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1005539.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

It's such a cool place. It's about an hour from me, otherwise I'd probably spend all my time there.

Just thought I'd share it with you. :)

I'm amazed at the "low" score for this masterpiece, Wendy.

So... moody and wonderful.

Nice perspective. Selenium duotone works well here. A redder, warmer hue would have been quite effective as well, but to a different effect, I think.
