“Monochrome Monday - Steel Dinosaurs”

We wrapped up our brief trip to northeastern Pennsylvania and in leaving made a stop by the stripping banks for this photo. They always bring to mind the creatures of millennia gone by in terms of their size and the fact that they loom silently seemingly almost abandoned amongst the scarred remains of the local landscape as a result of the coal mining industry in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania. The slate grey backdrop of the unsettled sky seemed to be the perfect backdrop for the subject. Home to New York and back again over the upcoming weekend and hoping to get out and about a bit more for additional photos in Pennsylvania while we are there. [21 November 2016]

What we do to the earth, we do to ourselves. This is a thought provoking shot. Marvelous in monochrome. Fav!

This is a nice shot, Brett. Almost timeless in it's appearance, I thought it was an old photograph at first. Great in b&w. Good choice.
