    Linda - Wow, the last image literally made my heart skip a beat as I scrolled onto it. Really powerful image, pure art!

The shots below were taken at a West Australian smelter in the goldfields, it made a change from being underground and another very interesting experience. All shot with the Canon 5D MKII and 70-200mm, 135mm and 24mm.
