Breaking Nick: Breaker by Twilight (2nd version)

The looming presence of the breaker just before sun up.

 

Note the long chute to the right. It was used to bring big chunks of coal to the top where they were dumped into tall machines which broke up the coal, washed, and sorted it.

 

This was my first visit to an abandoned coal breaker in the western middle fields of central Pennsylvania's anthracite coal country. I arrived there just before sun up and shot throught the early morning.

 

Taken with a Panasonic G5 (DMC-G5) and Olympus 9-18mm lens.
