Lithgow Blast Furnace - Slag Dump by 

177 views as of 6th December 2010

Another angle through the archway at the ruins of the Blast Furnace in Lithgow NSW Australia. This image shows the remnants of the hearth of the blast furnace when it was eventually shut down and cooled – leaving this huge and unusual monolith of iron and slag. Today it stands as a monument to the industrial wealth that was once on this site.

Taken with the Nikon D90, Tamron 18-270 mm lens, hand held.

I love the challenge of capturing what I see, admire and love. To share it with you is an added bonus. Photography to me is recording history. Please explore my galleries and enjoy♥

    Great framing, Bev.

  • Thanks Steve … the lump of slag was huge … the image doesn’t really show its size … I did walk over to it though and took some shots looking back from it at the ruins♥

    Beautiful composition – anda fascinating subject.
    This and a few of your other images might go well in “All That’s Archaeology” – we could do with some good industrial archaeology in the Group. Worth taking a look?

  • Thanks Trobe for the comment and suggestion about the group … will go and check it out … this was a truly amazing monument to what was once and is no more!
