Inspite of what you describe as "environmental control equipment", the planet located in a middle of nature's beauty, and just not fitting with the term of nature-reserve that must be a "clean" area.
The photo itself is outtanding, the view of desert golden tone, and even the three smoke's pipe aloft in a strait-up blow, as no-wind probably prevailed.

I remmeber this blot on a beautful landscape. I like your POV with the road leading up to the power station. Good desert colours. An interesting picture that has been well taken.

Good depth and details in capturing this shot. I like the puffy white smoke coming out of the plant against the spotless sky.

Amazing American landscape all flat shown with the Power plant in the background. Amazing little hils on the road-side. Interesting perspective too. Sharpness could be a tiny better.
Kind regards and thanks for your visit to my last picture

The thing I would expect in this image is to see Mad Max and his dog walking slowly up the road :)
Great desolate shot, and the heat and stillness can be felt with the way the emissions rise directly upwards.

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the brown desert area which include unevenness of ups and downs and coal-fired power plant with three tall chemneys. It is visible to a strange spectacle that a power plant is in Nature. However, it's impressive in white smoke where it soars straightly from a chimney. And, it draws out a tasteful spectacle for Route 89 extended straightly with perspective.
