THOTS OF HOME (3)

taken outside my home in nigeria. located near the fiery town of warri. on the right is wat remains of a gigantic housing project started in the 80s. belonging to nigeria's first experiments into steel production: the delta steel company. now its more or less run down and overrun by looters. the company was recently acquired by Mittal Steel.

UPDATE 04-APR-2006:
I've tightened the cropping on the lower-left to remove the intrusion. click here to see how the image looks like.

Beautiful scenery!
deji77: lol. one of those VERY rare occasions. thanks sinem for dropping a comment.
Great capture, Deji! This is one of my favorites of yours so far. The sky is brilliant and the composition is very fine. I do tend to agree with Suby on the cropping; maybe cropping out the slight intrustion at bottom left? High regards, Brent
deji77: thanks brent. strange i didn't notice that.
