Fine grungy, HDR-ish image. The structures and interwoven gizmos have that deadly serious mien of assault and implacable degradation, even as it's mission is eco-friendly. Can this substitute itself for an horizon of distant mountains? But even more so, it's the sky, these boiling clouds again a parody of nature. The photo is done so well that we can still appreciate the intricate beauty of the beast. Gives one pause amongst deeper discomfort.
Co- personal favorite of the challenge.
Hi Rich,
thank you for your nice comment on my photo! Yes, this whole place, Salton Sea, has a very weird, disquieting feel. Everything there, even this relatively new geothermal plant, show clear signs of decay. I don't know if you know it's history, it is fascinating. There is a nice documentary about it, Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea
