I was driving north of Burns, Oregon, and I saw this structure and had to photograph it. I ran into a couple of the locals and at one time a wood mill stood on this site, and this was an incinerator for the burning of scrap wood. I’ve seen these in other parts of the Pacific Northwest, but never this complete.
This shot is three portrait frames from the 5D MkII stitched in Auto Pano Pro for a square image. Can you tell I miss my Hasselblad? I was surprised at the quality–these are the monochrome .jpgs right out of the camera (I’m still working on the raw version). I’m guessing much of it had to do with the Canon TS-E 45mm Tilt Shift lens–it does do a stunning job.
