Industrial Skyline

I find the industrial skyline fascinating.  This is helped by the fact that I don’t live near any of this and don’t have to look at it everyday out of my window.  Whether you see it or not, your electricity in your home depends on this nuclear power station and various other industrial complexes.  The fascination is that these giants appear to be big machines with a single purpose.  Only up close can you see the rivets and the sheets of metal, the cables, switches and pistons which show these big machines are made up of a multitude of smaller ones.

Some of the nicest images come when these machines are contrasted with the natural environment.  The foreshortening of a long lens makes these cows look like they are much closer to the towers than they really are.
