The pipes connect to various pieces of machinery seen in greater detail to the immediate left of the structures. Behind the metallic equipment, a single smokestack is seen in the background. To the left of the smokestack, a metallic ramp structure appears to connect to the nearby hill. In the extreme background on the left, utility poles and can be seen behind a lush hillside.
