Sky Watch Friday




I've been noticing this sight for several months when traveling west on I-85 between Atlanta and Montgomery. They have cleared out such a large area that it looks like they are building a city. Can it be some sort of crane or the beginnings of a water tower? I have no idea but I thought maybe someone else might know. I took the picture when I was coming back home so I was actually traveling east towards Atlanta when I took
it.

Please visit Tom if you'd like to participate in Sky Watch Friday.

I thought it was some sort of silo at first glance. I see more of that vibrant red earth there, Dot! Thanks for such interesting shots.

quintarantino said...

When I saw the photos I thought it could be a water tower, then had some doubts and guessed I should ask you ...
But I see you also are not quite certain.
Well, even so, we got a good shot... and I'm betting on some water tower!

Firstly may I say welcome back Dot... :O) Big smile to see your Sky Watch post...

I will have a look this weekend to see if I can come up with some info on the crane/tower and the site itself... That red is very vibrant.

Kostas said...

I do not have idea what is, but sure he is something impressive!

Daniel J Santos said...

no idea, but it's interesting.

great photos, excellent the angle of the second.

DigitalShutterMania said...

DOT, this week you have such interesting sky watch shots ; )

John said...

I don`t know, but it looks like the leaning tower of pisa ;-)
Good post.

Paulie said...

Looks like a grain storage silo to me. . . love that blue sky! I ahve mine up also.

Hi Dot,
Very interesting but leaves me with more questions than answers for you...

Pernille's ting og tang said...

I think it is a water-tower. Nice photo and wonderful SWF-shot:)

Carletta said...

Love how it all comes together! The road, the sky, the red dirt - lovely.

fishing guy said...

Dot: I guess we will know which one it is when they go a little higher. Very nice picture.

D Herrod said...

Like the tilted shot.

David said...

It looks like a crane on top? Maybe something being built?

ANyway, it's a great shot! The angle is great in the second picture, and the lighting is just right.

Cheers,

I loved that way you angled the camera, and the red clay against that blue sky. This was a great post.

gmj said...

If I squint just right, looks like a outdoor waterpump for a giant?
Fun sky watch. I,m betting on Tom to come up with an answer.

granmal said...

Very interesting. Could be a water tower or something else- Anyway its a very nice picture.

Annie said...

I think your clouds are worth staring at so forget the scene on the ground and just look up, up. up.

Marcos Santos said...

The beauty of the picture depends on the look of the artist. Very good!

alexander said...

Interesting shot and interesting crane. Never seen one like this before. Great capture!

Have a wonderful weekend. :)

It's a bolt. I know you don't believe me, but they screw giant bolts like this in the ground, and that's what holds the continents in place.

Lovely colors, by the way!

Sharon said...

I love the beautiful, soft colored sky behind the....thing. I'll be interested to know what it is if you find out!

leslie said...

Great shot, but I felt a bit woozy looking at the second one! lol

LUIZ SANTILLI JR. said...

A beautiful structure!

I liked, I'm engineer!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Wow that is a different kind of water tower if that is what it is, also a very tall silo if it is that. be sure to let us know what is if you find out

Autumn said...

I know that area, not sure what they are building but it made a nice photo. The sky looks so pretty, with the fluffly clouds

Travis said...

Looked like a silo to me. I have no idea what it is. I really like the perspective of the second shot. Thanks for sharing.

Skittles said...

Beautiful!

With Mr. Linky I can scroll past the ones listed and select "other" and type in the name of the meme. I promise I wasn't stealing it from anyone.. it just makes it easier for people to sign in. :)

Lynette said...

Not a clue, Dot. I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at your recent posts, especially that robin on the fence. It is gorgeous.

Ida said...

Great pictures Dot.
Beautiful colours, from the ground all the way up to the top, complimenting each other. :)

Berit said...

I dont no, but it is beautiful, nice color.

oldmanlincoln said...

Very nice photography, Dot. I like it. I am still feeling awful. Hope the medicine kicks in soon.

Have a nice weekend.

Garden Angel said...

Rose said...

Nice sky!

Like Tom, I am glad you are back. I have been following your blog a little while now. Can't remember if I have left a comment before or not, but I do enjoy it.

Mark said...

It's a conumdrum! I've no idea. Will you post another photo when it's finished?

lv2scpbk said...

I really like the colors in the first photo.

RuneE said...

A taste of Pisa, perhaps?

Andrea said...

I think it is going to be a POWER PLANT. You will have to go back when the project is finished and take more pictures.

DeeMom said...

Sure is a big whatever...the crane scares me though

chanpheng said...

Interesting pictures. I like the angle on the second; I hope you post more as the thing develops.

Neva said...

I can never figure out what they are doing when they start some new project. your guess is as good as mine. and what I remember visiting Georgia as a kid, is how red my socks would get!

Quiet Paths said...

Bizarre structure, but it made for an interesting shot for sure!

Misty Dawn said...

Great pics Dot. I really like the angle on the second photo. (I thought silo, by the way)

Have a great weekend.

Carla said...

I love that first picture. Sort of looks like a silo to me.

Dewdrop said...

I was leaning toward silo too, but why would they clear all that land for a silo. I hope it's not some sort of mining operation in the works...

Anna said...

I have no idea what they might be doing, but it does make an interesting photo. I like the angle on that second one.

Carole said...

I think it looks like some sort of silo also. Kind of slim one though. Hmmm...a mystery Sky Watch!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Interesting shot, Dot. I sure hope no one's building another city in Georgia. Your area was in Canadian news a LOT last year because of water shortages. But, hey! What do I know? LOL.

Dick said...

I have no idea, maybe it is a silo?
Nice picture.

photowannabe said...

Happy to see you back blogging again. Not sure what the tower is but they are great shots.

Petunia said...

As always: Great photo and interesting post:)
Have a nice weekend!


You find my SWF post here

USAincognito said...

Looks like they are building a water tower. That is how our water tower looked during the construction process.

Anemone said...

As usual beautiful pictures in your blog. I have spend a lot of this afternoon watching your altest posts. Thank you for showing me.

Nice weekend wishes to you from Norway.

RAMOSFOREST.ENVIRONMENT said...

Your taken are beautiful.

Dan said...

Wonderful pics today. It looks like it is going to be a water tower to me. If there is a large housing development or something similar going in there they will need the tower to ensure there is sufficient water pressure.

the teach said...

No idea, dot! Maybe a silo...can't tell! I'm from New York City we don't see those kind of things here maybe a water tower every once in a while out on Long Island...:D

Jenni said...

I haven't read all the comments, but it is the KIA plant, in Troup County. Glad I found your blog...

AVCR8TEUR said...

It looks like a gigantic caulking gun. I hope you took the 2nd photo lopsided and that the structure isn't tilting.

Paulie said...

I forgot to tell you I have somefthing for you on my blog. Please come and get it. Ü

Andrée said...

I thought a silo, also, but I doubt it. You'll keep up updated, right? (It's a shame more earth is being ripped up, isn't it.)

Anonymous said...

The site along I-85 will be a Kia auto manufacturing plant and the structure is a water tower.
