Water Tower


The old water tower on the Pilgrim State Hospital grounds. Many of the buildings have been demolished years ago, but the water tower is still standing. I shot this a few weeks ago and have been fooling around with it. This is an HDR photo that I reprocessed with Topaz Adjust.  This was my first time using Topaz Adjust, there's a lot to learn. 
I remember coming here when I was in High School to make photographs for class. It was a scary place back then. It still a bit spooky today.

7.  I'm thankful I still have the desire to learn new things.

Great effects. The spookiness comes through wonderfully.

Oh my goodness, this photo is so lovely and haunting all in one! I am a fan of water-towers especially those like this....our Washburn Water tower in Tangle Town neighborhood of Minneapolis is exactly my kind of water tower, but this comes very close...the capture of such a mysterious and nearly scary sky makes this a dreamy photo for me....and how it sits out there all by itself...very cool shot!

What a magnificent sky. I play around with Topaz Adjust a bit. There is a lot to learn for sure.
