This is a wonderful shot Tim, not only catching the low sun, but also the brake lights relieving the gloom bottom left.
tim hitchins: so glad you mentioned that Mike, was tempted to clone them out but then like you thought hmmm they do show up the gloom rather wellsmile cheers Mike.

Quite amazing the way the light is catching the the central spout of steam. I love the way it reveals the contours of the two towers on the right as well. And as Blackdog pointed out, the car lights are the final touch. I like this one very much.
tim hitchins: well gald you do Ingrid, power stations are a reel thorn in people's side but i do find them very photogenic, most appreciated Ingrid smile

Strength, and somehow a beauty I wouldn't have expected to admit to seeing with all that hot air rising.
tim hitchins: ha yes a lot of people cringe when seeing these towers spewing out pollution but its either that or nuclear waste, which is worse? Cheers Ellie and enjoy your daysmile
