Driving in the rain and fog, stumpled upon this geothermal plant. Looked unreal in this weather. Basaltic black ground and grey sky/building. Scifi edge.
Geothermal power is the main source of energy for Icelandic people. Take a shower in Reykjavic and smell the sulfur! Enjoy all the hydrothermal bath and swimming pool. They are now exporting their knowledge utilizing this green source of energy.

Very original picture! Something one does not see a lot in the Iceland gallery. It almost seems B/W and like out of a science fiction film. Superb POV with the tubes joining at the building, I like the geometry of it all. The overall gives a feeling of power. The fact that the black is so deep without details adds to the atmosphere.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

Superbe photo. J'aime bien la lumière qui se dégage des tuyaux blancs et qui contraste avec la terre (volcaniques ?) noire.

Love the surreal feeling to this image. The fog and the shiny metal against the dark ground make this one look like something from another world.

Nice capture Stephane. The silver, grey and black look so stylized and clean. The composition works nicely with the bend in the pipes leading up to the building. I like this exposure, also, really emphasizing the pipes and that path they are taking to the building rather than trying to get everything in. I think it even has a look of some retro stylized version of a 1950s movie. I think Forbidden Planet is coming to mind and that giant machine. Nicely spotted and photographed.
