in this shot is the tale of beauty and the beast. on one side, the strong and powerful industrial landscape and the other, the ducklings that has become picturesque in our hearts and minds. the fury of the sunset unleashes sunlight that silhouettes the battleground. this takes away the advantage over the other. this was something i had to capture.
