Factory Setting

An abandoned World War II torpedo station appears suspended between a moody sky and a calm bay near Gdynia on the coast of Poland. Setting out from Warsaw, Your Shot member Trynidada drove through the night to catch the first light of sunrise—but as the sun came up, the weather turned dark. “The sky had this steel-like color, with just a hint of white clouds moving slowly on the horizon,” Trynidada writes.

Trynidada’s image was recently featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
