F-1 engine details
Speaking of a plumbers nightmare.... These three parallel tubes carried oxydizer at high pressure, as well as helium and compressed gases. They each have labels which show the flow direction, pressure and what flows through them. Pretty cool - literally in the case of the oxydizer, namely liquid oxygen. This image was taken at 28mm focal length with an exposure of 1/160 seconds at f/4, ISO 200.
