Pressure Cookers

By NDODS    
This image depicts the fuel storage depot on the Isle of Grain, which forms part of a small series of images captured a couple of days ago.

Thank you for all you wonderful and much appreciated comments and suggested modifications regarding yesterdays upload. I gave taken into consideration your suggestions and will upload them when I get a moment. They will be along side the original most.

Thank you all once again, its nice to know that my rather eclectic range of work is beginning to gain recognition for what it is "Whatever that might be?"

Regards Nathan


Hope you all have a great Day.

I shall be off line from about 10am due to more appointments

Wonderful image with beautiful light and a great lead in with that highlighted fence. I love it! Is that an eclectic fence? (Sorry, couldn't resist)!

Another great shot. I was passing through this location the other evening on my way back from a walk (and a few pics) at Grain. It was getting dark and I noticed the amazing looking lights that were starting to come on around the silos. I thought to myself I must go back and get some night shots if I could get away with it. Not sure if the security guards would be too happy though.

The positioning of the fence leads the eye right down and
into the image - lighting is superb!

Nathan, a remarkable image. Rich colour, contours, shapes lead - in and over all arrangement. A perfectly fitting sky to go with it and a dark dynamic after 6pm light to top it off. You are one patient individual to line this all up. So well done! TG

A fine composition with the top of the fence and sweep of the bay pointing towards the sunlit containers: it's all about light which you have handled so well, and presented the image so artistically.

Amazing light, Nathan.
A great composition as well - I love the contrast of that rather battered old fence leading us into the modern world of fuel storage silos.

Another excellent image a lesson to one and all regarding the use of natural light - like the rusty old fence in the shadows leading down to the water which not only takes the eye into the picture it adds texture and foreground interest - Elizabeth xx

I can't fault your composition, Nathan, spot on, and the lighting is almost perfect too. Those are the ingredients and you've 'cooked' them to perfection in the result. Excellent work.

Some rather pleasant light on this scene - I've always used a pressure cooker as did my mum before me. However you do have to get the pressure right and not overfill them. As its my mothers birthday today I'm sure she won't mind me sharing that there was one occasion when the weight came off and rice pudding shot up to the ceiling - so even in a kitchen you need to handle with care - but in terms of safety in the environment disasters are not funny at all

WOWWW. This is some exquisite light captured, Nathan!

Not just on those tanks but subtly so in the foreground and very much so in that dramatic sky.

Yes I appreciate the title. The price of gas is so high in India we feel the same like inside a pressure cocker. The cry is just not herd by the petroleum ministry, because they mint money every day & the money is being deposited in swiss banks,and we become poor.
