Thermite Fireworks

Description

Just a few blocks up the street from my new home, the Rhein-Neckar transit authority is replacing streetcar tracks that have supported trams for more than 80 years. This is the climactic moment in the process of joining rails together in Hellish Matrimony. I kicked up the shadows 4% and the highlights 18%. In its raw form, the brightness of the flames caused the camera to make all the roadbed around the conflagration too dark. The increase in highlights also lent more detail to the volcanic fireball blasting out of the welding pot. More pictures from this exciting process to come.
