Spools (Put Out To Pasture)

Out in the farmland in the middle of nowhere in Caswell County, I encountered this place with these giant cable spools reaching as far as the eye can see. It was a total non-sequitur for the area. One would expect this in the center of an industrialized location, not in fields adjacent to farms!

The early sun had started to tickle them with its golden tendrils of soft light. The colors ranged from cool blue (in the cool non-lit area) to warm orange (in the warm sunlit area). What a perfect opportunity it made. I decided to crop in such a manner to make the spools reach out of the frame in each direction and thus to emphasize the quantity of them.

I then processed this through Silver Efex Pro to render a dynamic B&W image. Click on the image above to see large on my Flickr feed.
