I’ve been wanting to do some Night Industrial photography this year and have stopped by here numerous times looking for steam. Last night there was finally steam, but a good wind too which unfortunately for this area is normal. I will be going back to photograph this again. I think at night this plant transforms into a sparkling beauty.
I also think it looks futuristic. I am reminded of Aurthor C. Clark’s book Earthlight. I can imagine the Republics he created on Mars, Venus, and the Moon looking like this.

Earthlight was one of the first Sci-fi novels I read back in late 70’s. I still have that book. The price tag says it was $1.50.
