The water flowing down over the huge stainless steel monolith in Cardiff Bay looks in close up like it could be the steel itself , solidified after a melt down. These images make the patterns of water look like solid metal, but I have done nothing with the colour – it is purely the effect of clear water flowing over cold steel. Any light or colour is a reflection of the grey sky. I guess if the weather had been warmer, the colour may have been warmer too.

These images can also bee seen on Leanne Cole’s Photography blog along with lots more “Monochrome Madness”.
The patterns in the water flowing down the steel monolith structure in Cardiff Bay look like they could be parts of an abstract jigsaw. The slow exposure shot below was not an easy one to get as I didn’t have a tripod with me. I did my best though and like the combination of textures and the patterns that show up as a result of the (apparently) faster flowing water.
It’s a while since I was in Cardiff bay when the water is flowing down this shiny steel structure in Cardiff Bay. It is the metal monolith under which Torchwood had it’s headquarters.
It was a pretty grey day but I was pleased to have my camera with me – the patterns the water makes can be mesmerising. More of those to come shortly and some extra shots from my iPhone can be seen on Instagram – these can also be seen in the sidebar of the StillWalks blog.
