The sun sets on the tramline by the Nowa Huta steelworks

Amazingly, this is how the scene presented itselt to me - I've done very little to tweak its appearance. I think the lighting is so orange for a combination of three reasons: the sun was low (but of course), the steelmill was working full blast kicking all kinds of particulate matter into the air, and the tramline was next to a busy main road that had been worn down to dust by all the heavy goods traffic. It was a good hour that I spent walking back towards Nowa Huta in this light - the glow was fabulous.
