Boodles Explosion, A Week Later

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

A lonely view of this block of Bozeman’s Main Street a week after I took this photo of it teeming with activity. On the pile of debris in the bottom right corner is a memorial to Tara Bowman. A week of near 0° F has kept the ice buildup caused by many hours of spraying with fire hoses intact.

  • Very dramatic photo. The motion of the clouds compared with the stillness of the debris is interesting.

  • amazing to think of something (chemicals?) having that much power. the sense of it now being an aching hole comes across very strongly in your image.

  • it does look riveting, like a shot from a war torn country.. :D the b&w rendition goes great with it too..

  • The clouds coupled with the ruins make this look so dramatic. Great to see you are geo tagging photos.. :)

  • belle opposition pour une image du futur de la Terre

  • Dramatic and sad. You have made it look like a desolate place. The sky works particularly well.
