Lemon Yellow Beacon

"Railroad Signal(Sulfur Piles)"

Industrial subjects can be fascinating if you see them with the "right eye". While so many find them ugly, I don't. More on my that in later posts.

These sulfur piles were too hard to resist, bright lemon yellow in the middle of all these blues, silvers and rusty earth tones. I'm sure they are at least 30 feet high, so they reflected the bright sunlight like a beacon. Here's one subject I'll revisit later, showing more of the surrounding colors, and in a larger format.4
