Rusting abandoned machinery. Abandoned tracked vehicle and other machinery, rusting due to exposure to air and water. Rust is hydrated iron oxide, and results from a reaction between iron and atmospheric water vapour and oxygen. This corrodes and weakens the original iron or steel structure. Photographed in October 2006 in the village of Ust-Usa in the Usinsky District, Komi Republic, Russia.
