Six minutes! All that time brings so much detail and depth. The smoke from the stacks in such amazing formation. Beautiful image, Ian.

Great work Ian, as always! Apart from the wonderful effect brought about by the long exposure, I particularly like how you use the brushwood as the foreground this time... superb tone and perspective!
