The biggest circle around I can offer (and a lot of triangles too), with a diameter of 33,7 m.
Itīs one of the two DEW (Dortmund Energy and Water) gasometers near the Dortmund port,
to supply the population of Dortmund with natural gas.

This is also part of my new gallery 'Dortmund Port':

For others taking part in the december challenge 'circles, etc...', look here:

other sizes: small medium original auto

Well done image, great sharpness and a very interesting composition. v

Wow, this is just super with these sharp details and lighting on the tank and tree. This perspective makes me feel as if the gasometer was tilting towards me. "V"

You've taken a mundane object and made a great photo out of it. Well done.

perfect industrial image V
Astrid Taen27-Dec-2009 23:05
I liked the way you captured what could have been a cold industrial image. The tree and the lighting gives it a wonderful feel.

We must admit that the design of all these big things for energy and so are somehow esthetic and harmonious !
This is what you have shown here !
