Photographer's Note

You are looking at one of the very few Steam Clocks in the World.

Most Steam Clocks today have been designed and built by Canadian Raymond Saunders. He has steam clocks running in Japan, Canada, and the united states.

This paticular Clock was built in 1977. The Clocks are running on a steam enging. There are 5 steam whistles afixed to the top of the clock, if you look closely, there are 4 small whistles at each top corner, and one large whistle in the middle.

The 4 smaller whistles chime every quarter hour, the large centre whistle chimes / blows steam every hour!

I was lucky this paticular morning as the clouds and sunrise made for a purple colour effect in the sky, very little adjustments were made in post processing.

Thanks for looking!
Craig
