Picture day 134 – Cooling towers

© Petra Stridfeldt

This weekend I took my motorbike (and camera) up to the north east of England. It was fantastic weather but unfortunately when it’s nice weather the light is not that interesting but I manage to get a few shots. I have never been to this part of England before and was surprised how nice it was. However, this shot will probably not make people to go there, but for some reason I can’t stop photographing this places. I was a bit disappointed that the cars were park in front of these massive cooling towers but I couldn’t really ask them to move them.

    Just love the shapes and lines in industrial photos. Your composition is great, and I understand your frustration with the cars, but in the same time they contribute wonderfully to the sence of scale here.
    Love it in bw!

    another sort of “twin towers”–most appropriate for the 9/11 anniversary.

    Great photo – there’s something primal about industrial landscapes and the way their forms are fitted to function. I know what you mean about cars being parked in front of the things you want to photograph. People also get in the way of a good photo.

    Great shot, works really well in B&W mode. I found it interesting how both towers have a “wear” pattern in virtually the same spot. p.s. – thanks for visiting my blog, Acadian Soul!

    So “ugly” but what a great picture!

    Cooling towers are heat removal devices used to transfer process waste heat to the atmosphere. Cooling towers may either use the evaporation of water to remove process heat and cool the working fluid to near the wet-bulb air temperature or, in the case of closed circuit dry cooling towers, rely solely on air to cool the working fluid to near the dry-bulb air temperature.
