New Smoke Generator on Haupt


I've been experimenting with a new smoke unit from Cogswell Cogs Inc. It is DCC controlled. You load it with tiny little logs, add a little kindling from shaved pine bark, turn it on and and it takes over. It seems to work pretty well, but it keeps setting off the smoke detector in the basement.

For those that are interested, this is a hand held iPhone shot. I took multiple images and used focus stacking. Then I did just a little post processing in Photoshop.

If you want a full resolution copy of this image you can download from this dropbox link. It might not be there long as Dropbox is closing soon, so get it while you can.

  1. A marvelous picture. Where there is smoke, there is fire, eh?

    I think it'll be a fine desktop picture, it is big enough. Just had to crop it a bit. I wanted as much of the smoke as I could, but also vertically, not cut off the rail in the lower right. When I cut it down to 1600 x 897 pixels, it cut off your signature, Bernard. Please consider this for next time.

  5. Jetson worked for the competition (except in a few decidedly atypical episodes).

    I don't think we ever knew who the Bob Bartini analogue over at Cogswell was -- perhaps it's now time for the reveal...
