As I clambered down into a partially collapsed tunnel at the old Joliet Illinois Iron Works, I was instantly drawn to this scene. The mid afternoon sun was streaming in from a hole in the ceiling, bathing the walls of the old brick tunnel in a warm, yellowish green glow. The circular brick patten framed the scene. The old iron works is a strangely beautify place, very industrial yet somehow also natural in its decay. Crawling on my belly over the dusty ground, and lugging my tripod along, I managed to get this shot. Taken with a fisheye, an HDR merger of 3 longish exposures.
