Photographer's Note

This is a phoot of the blast furnace at Corus Steel works Redcar. it was taken as i drove to south gare to try and get some decent sunset photos, but alas it was not to be, the clouds conspired against me and it was VERY windy and hard to keep the camera still. So only the faster exposures worked.

This one was taken as three different shots, i stood on my car wheel to make sure that a fence wasnt included in the shot. I feel thsi could have been sharper, and maybe if I had waited a bit longer I could have got some more intense colours, but its not far away so I can always revisit!

Corus produce steel for use all overthe world, the steel is made from many raw materials including Iron. The blast furnace is where molten iron is formed, with temperatures thousands of degrees C, the molten iron is then poured into torpedos (train carriages capable of carrying moltem metal without burning) and taken to the BOS plant where the iron is turned into steel. The steel is cooled enough to it is malleable, then rolled into slabs or blooms and shipped out to whoever needs the steel!
