This part is called the black side of the Zollverein coking plant. There are ten coke oven batteries with 304 coke ovens over a length of 800 meters. This moat is usually turned into an ice rink during the winter. Reprocessed from images taken in 2007.

Excellent composition Axel. Love the lines and mirrored reflections. You Fail to state how many exposures were used to create this image which always helps to evaluate an image for POTD consideration. Thanks for sharing and keep posting.

Thanks a lot, Ed. Well, a bit funny because I added four exposure times which means four shots.

@axel_hahn , Yes that is Funny Axel. I totally missed that. I always look for the number of exposures under EXPOSURE NUMBERS and not the EV. My Bad.
