In an old abandoned pumphouse was this very large valve. To me, it was like the very aged veterans I see sometimes, weathered but still ready, standing at attention at a parade.

This picture was a challenge and required me to move debris about to control the ambient light by blocking windows or making impromptu reflectors. The back windows were covered with green fiberglass corrugated sheeting which gave the background color.

This is not HDR.

    Wow! Nice color, texture, and lighting. I would very much be afraid to turn that valve!
