The Mill

By Saastad
Thank you all so much for the great respons with awards, votes and comments on my last photo.
It is much appreciated!
This photo is taken for not so long ago in my city Moss. Every year it is a long row of farmers with their corn.
I really like the contrast between the Mills and the clouds in this photo. And I hope that someone else like it too Smile
Wish you all a fine new week!

Super image, Arne. The converging verticals of the towers give a sense of height and reaching towards the amazing sky where the clouds lead in to the building. I might have straightened the verticals to a less exaggerated angle and tried a less heavily edited sky, but I do like your view of the scene.

A very powerful mono image, Arne. I find with the towers all reaching towards the sky, it looks like they are belching out smoke and creating the turbulent skyscape. It reminds of the satanic mills pictures you used to see, in old Victorian images of the factories in industrial towns, with all the smoke and grime.
