Photographer's Note

Taken the same day as the 1st reflected ducks, this cooling tower is one of eight, belonging to a very large coal fired power station, which tries to be enviromently friendly by passing all its flue gasses through a filter which combines them with something which the end product is the stuff (gypsum) they make plaster board out of.
The vapour coming out the top of the tower is only pure water vapour coming off the elements inside the tower as cold water pous over the pipes containg the hot water from the steam turbines electric generators.
the rail way infront of the tower goes between Nottingham and Lougborough and also into the back of the power station for 40 wagon long trains full of coal to power the place. I hear tell they hold 2years supply of coal in hand in case somebody interupts the coal supply.
anyway it wasnt until after the first couple of trains hed thunderd passed I thought to try and inclued one for a scence of scale.
Adjustments limited to a small crop and saturation +10 and USM 130% X 2.4 px radius X threshold 1
