I did my degree in Chemical Engineering and one of the courses involved a visit to the steel production facility at Port Kembla. I decided to go and visit the site to see if there was anything that would grab my photographic interest. I knew that I would be limited to what I could see from the perimeter of the site, but it was worth checking out.
I discovered that the coke production plant is readily viewed from the street and I was taken with the steam and lights and colours and shapes.

While I was in Port Kembla looking for steel works photos I took the opportunity to drive around the area looking for other interesting places. I came across Hill 60 which has a lookout that provides a view of the coastline north and south of Port Kembla. I like the misty views that nearly blur the line between sea and sky.
