Another HDR sequence, this one of some kind of valve assembly. Despite all the rust, JoDee and I could turn the cranks and watch some of the gears work. We could only imagine what this machine must have sounded like in its heyday.
This machinery was on a raised platform accessible from the ground only by a set of steep iron stairs. To get the angle shown above it was necessary to set up my camera on its tripod.
Ask any photographer what her most valuable accessory is and tripods will probably end up in the top five. A good tripod will be stable, sturdy and versatile enough to allow you to take long exposures, HDR sequences, or anything where hand held photography is not an option.
