Space Heater Element

Each year over Thanksgiving my family heads down to Carolina Beach, NC to spend the Holiday with my mom's brother Joe his wife and 2 girls. At some point during the stay we take a walk to the ruins of the Dow Chemical plant back in the woods by the Cape Fear river. One year during the walk I picked up this rusty heater element because I thought it would be interesting as a photograph. I then decided that I did not feel like carrying it so I put it down against a stump and left it there. The next year we took the same walk and it was still there in the same spot.
