A colorful metallic object with a hole in it, through with a valve is visible.
It's ultrawiiiiiiide!

The Redridge Dam is a really fun place to wander around with a camera, especially if you have an ultrawide lens. Since I just received my shiny new ultrawide in the mail, I headed out to enjoy the lines, angles, and textures of the old dam. This is one of my favorites -- one of the old valves which controlled water flow through the dam. Over the years, the valves have become stuck, and during the spring the water often flows right over them. That's what has happened to this valve, which has gone decidedly askew.

If you had a shop on Etsy, you could totally call this a steampunk image. Can't you see Howl's moving castle shedding the piece as it mozies on by? ;-)
