A mile or so from where I grew up - the coal fired ComEd plant always provided a backdrop for my views. In the winter the soot from the plant would settle on the fallen snow - leaving clear dark lines in the snowbanks where it had settled between snows.

When I drove down with my wife in 2009 to take some of these we were quickly pulled over by security - the personable guard said there was nothing he could do about us taking photos from the public road - they just wanted to make sure we weren't terrorists. Totally different feel and experience than we had just had at the Zion (nuke) plant.

and from 2013

and a segway .....
