The latest from my ongoing River Rouge series.

The industrial landscape comes to life at night... eerie sounds of heavy industry fill the air, beams of harsh factory lighting reveal the glowing smoke billowing from smokestacks. I revel in the experience and ponder the ingenuity of mankind.

Photographing The Rouge at night has become almost a necessity as it has become virtually impossible to set up a tripod without being greeted by homeland security guards within a matter of minutes. It has been increasingly frustrating for me and am not sure how many police reports with my name on it are on file at their headquarters.

Prior to making this shot, I was on the opposite side of the island at dusk and found a great photo opportunity. Three smokestacks in the distance between some trees with a giant pipeline running over my left shoulder, crossing under the factory. Overhead power lines perfectly encapsulating the scene provided for a strong composition. Just as I started setting up my tripod, security arrived and I was unable to take a single exposure. Another Police report and very frustrated I moved upriver and was able to conceal myself long enough to capture this image.

Zug Island is a heavily industrialized island located at the mouth of the Rouge River where it empties into the Detroit River. It is home to the Great Lakes Steel Corp. and is the entry point for large ships to access Henry Ford's River Rouge Complex.

Not too sure this fits within the stylistic direction I have been taken lately, but wanted to give the high-key minimalistic thing another go. I will most likely be posting a square version of this (minus the two outer posts) soon.

These 2:1 crops are displayed way too small so please do yourself a favor - press "L" and view larger!
