Heavy Metal

Let's see your interpretation of this theme. Please ensure that there is a very clear reference to the phase "Heavy Metal" in your photo, however you interpret it.

Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Size limitations: Your photo is only limited to the file size limitation set by PhysicsForums. However, your may want to consider reducing the size of your photo if the file size exceeds 1 Mb. If your file is being hosted elsewhere, I will have to see how it is being displayed here, and I may ask you to resize and resubmit if it causes problems.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how. Alternatively, you may simply upload your image file to PF, and then have the full image displayed in your post.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawal by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

Zz.

Shield, spear and helmet: worth their weight in bronze in a fight. (Ignore the power lines in the background.)

"Big Boy" locomotive built in 1941, at the Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, Pennsylvania. This was likely the heaviest type of steam locomotive ever built: about 350,000 kg for the locomotive itself, and 200,000 kg for the tender.

One of them has been restored to operating condition. It actually stopped in Omaha during a cross-country tour at nearly the same time as my trip there last summer. Constraints on my schedule prevented me from seeing it in person.

Doc is a Boeing B-29 Superfortress Heavy Bomber manufactured in 1944. One of two still flying today. :wink:

Black Sabbath at the Scotiabank Saddledome, March 4th 2016. The kings of heavy metal! And Tony Montana for good measure.

Just for once I have an idea for a photo I could enter for this (this thing, which is for forming warship armour - photo via Google image search) but I don't have one I've taken and can't justify the trip to take it at the moment even if the place were open.

The only thing I own made out of gold (white gold), and my greatest earthly treasure.
