    This was the last site on our road trip and really was one of the highlights along with Newport Bridge. Dempsey had been chatting forever about how great Corus is so I went in expecting it to be good, but I was still totally blown away by the shear size of this place.
    We rolled up late on Monday night, kitted up and headed out.

    We slowly stealthed and photographed our way across the site, but progress was slow due to trouble navigating round various "obstacles" and trying to be as quiet as possible.

    After a lot of effort and failed attempts we finally found a good route into the main building, a maze of pipes and machinery. It was pretty obvious you could spend a whole year taking photos in here and never run out of ideas, the machinery looked so awesome all lit up. For me there were a few brown pants moments, including when I saw out of the corner of my eye, a security guard walk through a doorway only 5 meters away. I can only assume he was looking the other way as he just wandered off to the other side of the building. Dempsey has a rather comedy photo of me pulling a stupid pose trying desperately not to move :)

    After 4 hours the accumulated tiredness of the roadtrip began to kick in and we were forced to leave after seeing only 10% of the site. On our way back we spotted the security guard on his patrols, it was really cool knowing where he was, and the feeling of stalking him instead of it being the other way round!

    Unfortunately some of my photos have come out rather bad as I was a bit too excited to notice the amount of dust building up on my lens :)
