High above the ground at this old iron furnace is the gas purification deck. I’m no expert on the steel making process, but it is my understanding the gases that resulted from the process of making iron were captured and reused in other areas of what was once the Homestead Works. Today Carrie Furnace is what remains, a small part of what was once a vast steel mill on the Monongahela River. Last Saturday I took a group from RoadRunner Photography Tours Meetup to this really cool site. We are currently making plans for a return trip next spring!
I’m just starting to process the images and am really looking forward to working on the ones that were made after dark!
The image above was made with Topaz Black and White Effects with a little of the original color mixed in.
