    This is, I think, a sort of "landscape" photo.

    I was in for an all nighter during our mill startup and we had a long delay getting going. I decided to stay awake by checking some of the dampers on the roof and took the G5 with me. It's a long climb up the old steel stairs and the catwalk I'm on is about 150 to 180 feet up (can't remember exactly).

    This is overlooking a vast expanse of industrial territory beginning with our mill, then an air liquification and separation plant, and a whole bunch of refineries. You can even see more refineries across the river (you can see reflections on the river to the RIGHT (said left before, sorry) mid frame if you look carefully).

    Colors change with the type of gas discharge lighting used: sodium vapor(orange), mercury vapor (green), and xenon (white).

    Single exposure on a tripod taken with a Panasonic G5 (DMC-G5) and Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 lens.

    Nice shot.

    Mercury vapour doesn't sound too pleasant though :eek:
