Valley of Fire

George Cousins

North Saanich,British Columbia, Canada

Artist's Description

Taken in 1957, trains of huge “ladle” cars carrying molten slag from the refinery at Coppercliffe, Ontario,Canada, and dumping them into a rocky ravine-type valley. Pretty much the same as lava flows from a volcano. The photo was taken with a 35mm. Exakta Varex camera using Ektachrome film(not the high-speed type), with quite a long exposure to try to get as much of the flow as possible. I’m only posting it because I thought it might be of interest to some of you.Not a sight that you could see in very many places. The slide was scanned at 4000dpi with a Canoscan 4000US scanner.
