I alway enjoy your photos of this plant. This one is nice for the minimalist presentation. The fog and the row of (I don't know a word for it) in front make the image.

@Mirko Herzner: I'm not sure what they are either Mirko but the river has been used for hundreds of years so they could be old wooden mooring posts or the remains of an old landing stage.

Just coming back to this photo, I reckon it'll be worth having a go at it again from the same viewpoint when there's huge plumes of cloud rising from the cooling towers. I'll look forward to the result :)

@Mike: I agree in entirely Mike. I haven't seen Fiddlers Ferry operating at full power for a long time now but maybe this coming winter will bring a bit more steam and smoke.

Ian Smith from London, United Kingdom

Very nice monochrome.

John Leech from Grange-over-Sands, United Kingdom

Looking good. I like the white sky approach here, though the line of towers and chimney look rather pulled. I'd need to see it with those burned black.

@John Leech: Thanks John....I'll look at that idea as soon as I get a chance.

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Very nice composition and BW picture.

very interesting perspective and angle - a good contrast between the massive power plant and the small planks in the foreground... they also lead the eye in towards the plant very well...

A lovely picture...I love the foreground in this Ian!
