The Blue Tube

The Jeremiah O’Brien in dry dock, February 2012.  The shipyard night shift crew was welding deep inside the engine room.  Using fans to ventilate the confined spaces, the gasses were blown through hundreds of yards of plastic tubing, run up through the ship and out the superstructure.  You could hear the toxic wind rushing through it.

Another shot with the camera off the tripod, sitting on the deck pointed almost straight up.  I used the 60D’s swivel screen and live view to frame it.  Blue-gelled Stinger flashlight on the tube and the rope bundles.  30 second exposure.
