This photo by Patrick Hoesly features a stunning swirl of molten metal that will be poured out and cooled to create some sort of sturdy component or functional product. The color and texture in this picture caught my eye as I browsed the selection of metal pictures online. A pleasant alternative to boring photos of metal pipes, fittings, couplings, and the like. I can’t honestly tell you exactly which metal is featured in this photo, but I could check in with a company like Magellan Metals to identify it if I was so inclined. In the mean time, I think I will just enjoy the shiny loveliness of this photo.
