Red sky at night

The sky would glow red when this mill poured slag at night. It was beautiful, if not exactly environment-friendly.

Wow!

That's it! Just Wow!

What a brilliant photographer. This man was truly an Artist with a capital A.

What a Great Photograph!

That's all I have to say. The shot speaks for itself!
