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.

Glad to see another view from Arizona! I miss this warm sunny State. But I don't know this place, we were in Phoenix, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon only.
Special thanks for the link! You have got outstanding photo gallery. The photos are superb!
Greetings from Russia!

The length of the highway is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of hills and of the power plant. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

I was once again getting ready to dive right into your Switzerland gallery, but when I went to your profile page, this one showed up. Since I was just here a couple of months ago, it caught my eye and now I just have to go with this photo today. :)
I had also taken some shots of these smokestacks, but mine didn't turn out anywhere as good as yours....this is a much better composition, and far more interesting. Not only do they make for a solid centerpiece to this framing, but this is a fine representation of the Arizona landscape in this region of the state. The perspective is strong and deep, taking us right into the distance with the converging roadway. Natural earthy colors, blue sky and warm sunlight...this all comes together quite nicely indeed! Have a terrific week. Take it easy.
