The Crane and the Odeon - Alderney by 

An old railway crane rusts gracefully in the Mannez Quarry , over looked by the Nazi “Fire Control Tower”, known locally as the “Oden” on the island of Alderney in the English Channel.
The sky was so interesting, I raced around the Island looking for a good spot to photograph it! :)

    The clouds, though good, are the least appealing of this great work

  • thanks for the comment. The clouds, which is really a blown apart contrail, were not as good by the time I got this Shot.

  • Thank you so much for the feature! Just for the record, Alderney has the only railway in the channel Islands, and it still runs!
