It taunted us

The Story

Expectations ran really low as soon as all of us congregated in a small office to sign our waivers before shooting around the Satsop Nuclear Facility. That weekend was the first in months with rain. The first words from our guide came in the form of warnings about our limited access and being prohibited from climbing to the top of the cooling towers. Bah!

Despite being prohibited from getting to the top, we were treated to a wonderful vantage point from an elevated position adjacent to the tower. A few of us decided to see what we could get with our cameras at this angle despite getting raindrops on the front elements of our lenses within seconds. It was a fun game of wipe, compose, shoot. But, I think we all walked away with shots that we’re really proud of.

By we, I am referring to the wacky bard of photographers – +Nicole S. Young, +Amy Heiden, +Brian Bonham, +Jeffrey Yen, +Christopher Germano, +Arno Jenkins+Tressa Crozier, and +Joe Azure.

In terms of processing

It’s all Perfect B&W here, baby. This is our newest product as part of Perfect Photo Suite 7, by +onOne Software, and I am not shy at all to proclaim how much I freaking love this product. We’ll be shipping next week and I can’t wait to see what all of you think about it.

    Love this shot. I’m not sure what the repercussions would have been for climbing, but I imagine the waiver meant they were not liable for your injury so my final act of the day would have been to give it a go I think :)

    My eyes gets drawn to the large white areas on top +Brian Matiash . Maybe a little vignette would help to direct viewer's attention to the pattern formed by stairs. Thank you for sharing.

    apparently I am the only one that was too worried about getting his lens wet and didn't shoot this, kicking myself now.

    What a great viewpoint! Love the symmetry of the lines and the fog/mist at the top. Also, I love reading the stories behind the photographs. Can't wait to try PPS7.
