Big wheel!

This is the last of my pictures of the remnants at the old Suquash Mine site.

The cast iron wheel origionally used at the top of a headframe for hoisting coal cars in and out of the mine is about 10 feet across and in very good condition considering it's 150+ year age.

This is another HDR combination of 3 photographs using Photoshop CS4, the Sigma 10 - 20 at 10mm and a tripod.


  1. Well Professor, this has certainly been a series that was much enjoyed. Very nice pictures all with an HDR finish to enhance. Informative narratives that made me want to read more. Yes I had to do a web search to satisfy my curiosity for more info. Great Pics and Good Information! Nice!

  2. This is a cool shot! The HDR and the way you have shot this gives it an almost 3D quality.

    You're getting pretty good with that tripod. Now all you need is a couple of filters and you'll be good to go! LOL

  3. Well, someone getting really comfortable with the tripod! "Did you hear me Ron." LOL. I like the colors on the wheel, the HDR really bring out the rusty looks to it. Good Work!
