Antique cannon ball, steel weight and railroad spike. These are items I have found during my forays into the Utah countryside.

Taken with a Canon PowerShot SD800 IS.

“Old Steel” was featured in The Compact Group.

    Great finds, excellent photo and composition

  • Thanks, the cannon ball is actually very old, they used to pour the molten lead into a round mold, in recent past they were made in half molds.

    Wonderful image love the colour and tone, would you just put camera details on and we can accept into the compact group. Thank you : )

  • Thank you Karen and Pamela. Sorry I didn’t have the camera details on, it’s now there. I’ve been trying to go back and do that to all my images, but haven’t completed the project.
