    This looks surreal, like something right out of a movie. Well done.

    Very nice. Did you use any filters for this or HDR/Tone mapping techniques? As pm63 said, it reminds me of a scene right out of the Myst/Riven PC game series. Really neat find.

    Wow, that's beautiful. Is it HDR or tone-mapped? It also looks liked you kicked up the blues to make it look surreal, but that could just be the time of day.

    I love your photos.

    Thank you everyone! Your comments are appreciated.

    This is an old stamp mill, used for crushing rock/gold ore into dust and then removing the gold.

    Photo-wise, it's an older image (2003) I shot with a nikon 990 in automatic mode. A curve adjustment, and a bit of dodging and burning. I like the 990 because I can hold it waist high and get very steady shots without a tripod. Always reminded me of my Mom's old tlr I used when I was a kid, but with autofocus.
