Tunnels of Light

Along the I&M Canal, there once stood a massive steel mill in Joliet.  Now, there is little that remains but the overgrown ruins.  Near one of the old blast furnaces there’s two tunnels under an inclined ramp.  This is one of the areas that the weeds seem to prosper because of the smaller amounts of soil contamination.

I was disappointed that I was only able to get a few good images here.  The neutral colors and lack of good light wreaked havoc on my camera as all the images lacked any depth or feeling.  This was about the only one, and it works because of the light play on both the new and old.
