Photo of the day: The gears of progress


The gears of progress, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
At Furnace Creek Ranch in Death Valley National Park is a museum of the early mining history of the area. I don't even remember what piece of machinery this was part of, but I was attracted by the marvelous pattern of gears and cogs, and the pattern of rust coating everything. You can see the original photo here, but I thought the image looked even better with a bit of stylization to emphasize the industrial appearance; hence, the "contour" post-processing.
