Hurley Smokestack Demolition

Hurley Smokestack Demolition

I was shooting into the sun, but was as close as you could get to the demolition site, so, tradeoffs are tradeoffs. I like this one because you can see the Kennecott stack (built in 1939 when the Hurley Smelter was constructed) breaking up before impact.

There’s another angle here.
