Steampunk in the Steamplant

Photo and text by H. Brian Rauvola

Another in what is hoping to be a series of environmental portraits on steroids! Northland News Center anchor Michelle Lee told me that she is intrigued by steampunk and is a "closet rocker," though she cannot play any instruments. What better venue for this than the Duluth Steam Plant.
This image is a 9 image composite with the majority of the lighting in the background from light painting with a variety of LED flashlights. Other pieces from around the facility were merged together to create the final composition.

Thanks go to Jim at the Plant for working with the City of Duluth for access and for allowing us to take over for a couple of evenings!
