This coal fired power plant in Denver is one of thousands in the country. As we shift our focus to more green technologies for creating energies, scenes like this will become more rare. We’ll begin to see more solar panels and wind turbines replacing smoke stacks and huge piles of coal.
I took this image when I first made my fisheye lens in 1998. It was in Northeastern Colorado along I-25 somewhere. Along that whole stretch of highway you see grasslands, windmills, and oil pumps.
