The large on black view is a must here.
Another shot from the crow's nest at the Swift Meat Packing Ruins, near the stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas.
I was never completely happy with my original image of this scene at the Swift Plant; so when I revisited the site again back in February with Chris & Tom (who was visiting from El Paso), I got the opportunity to shoot it once again, this time with some interesting cloud cover! Unfortunately though, as we saw these spectacular clouds rolling in on a lower floor of the building on what had been a clear night, I wasn't able to make to the roof as quickly as I had hoped, as we ran into some urbex guys and I was delayed chatting long enough that the leading edge of these clouds had already passed through by the time I was able to make this shot.
All things considered, I still like the shot, but if I could have gotten there 3 or 4 minutes sooner... :-)
Night, dark of the moon, ambient sodium & mercury vapor light, 2 minute exposure.
