Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement


The combination of sulphurous fumes and salt air forms a toxic mix that will reduce steel to flakes in short measure.  Sulphur mining ceased on White Island in the mid 1930s and the factory plant abandoned to the elements.  The sculptural effect of some 70 years of steady corrosion presents some fascinating viewing for visitors.
