What & Where?

Something
Some place (Some date)
Some camera

Ready to guess something neat?  Here you go, with a few clues:

  • This is an extreme crop of a much larger image.
  • It is not in the Smithsonian, nor is it associated with it.
  • It is not the B&O Railroad, nor is it associated with it in any way.

Those are your clues… have fun!

UPDATE:  Kathy D has taken the crown this time!  The correct guess was the Berkeley Pit in Butte, Montana.  The complete image is below:

      Oh god… that’s awful.

      The geese aren’t the only ones in danger; people are as well. The water level — along with all the heavy contamination — is rising every year, at a rate of about one foot per month.

      Once it rises to the level of the local aquifer (maybe 12 more years?), it will then render the potable water supply poisonous, possibly for many thousands of people in that region. There is currently an effort to treat the pit water and make it safe, but the present processing facility isn’t big enough and the incoming effluent amounts are outstripping their ability to filter it.

      Supposedly there is another treatment facility that’ll come online in 2018 that’ll finally be able to handle it all, but that remains to be seen.
