An "oldie" from 2010 ... Canon EOS 30D with EF 24mm f/2.8 lens.
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

This is Drax Power Station in Yorkshire, England and is coal fired. It has been sited by the Norwegians as responsible for the acid rain falling in Norway. I believe they are using a cleaner fuel now.

I think that it's interesting that it is within eye-shot of the other power station deeper into the depth of field!

That is what I noticed last night but was too sleepy to post. I am sure he did it by design. Sporgon's framing is always excellent! If it were me I would have discovered the second power plant during PP :P

Agreed!  Sporgon does have a tendency to lean toward very fine composition!

Another with the same camera.  Needs more work but I don't feel like looking for the raw file at the moment.

One of my first attempts at single shot HDR processing, shot with my old 50D and the 50mm f/1.8 ii.

So I had the good fortune to be around to see and capture this sight.  Sometimes the heavens open up and you can see the light!

I somehow missed this image the first time through RPT, glad I did a retake, very nice capture indeed!  ;)

Awesome backyard Don!  Stunning!

Thanks Krob78. The scene lasted may be a minute or so and then it was gone. This is Newport Coast in the LA area looking to the ocean.

Thanks Ken & Rustom. The power station in the distance is Eggborough, one of three built on the Selby coalfields. Its inclusion gives the picture some depth. Without it the picture becomes more one dimensional. There is a large wind farm just off to the left. I'm sure there is a very good picture to be had of the modern and older power generators together, I just haven't found where it is yet !
