I had to save #6 - I think that'd make a funny usericon!

Magnificent! Grain elevators are very dangerous places but also fascinating and dramatic. Nice work.

Lovely photos. I like the "fingers" and the wasp reminds me a bit of a gas mask for some reason.

Nice set. Having grown up in the Midwest, I was so used to seeing these huge industrial grain silos and storage sites around the edges of the city I lived in. Most of them are long gone or repurposed.

There are dozens of grain elevators here in the Twin Cities, and just a few years back an urban explorer fell and was seriously injured. Dangerous, yes, but the sheer scale is awesome!
