It's very attractive at night. Hurray for power!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

We do need power!

I'm sorry I am so far behind commenting--am working on a novel at the retreat house where there is no internet.

Very cool picture. I like the orange glow.

Mama Zen said...

Who would have thought that a power station could be so gorgeous?

Jacob said...

This is simply stunning, Mary! The colors are magnificent; composition is excellent; and it's nice and sharp!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thanks so much, James, Mama Zen and Jacob! I really appreciate it!!!

That's the reward for a half hour walk carrying a tripod!

It's funny to write, but the power station does look powerful due to the 2 chimney-like things enlightened.

I think the chimneys are lit so the airplanes and helicopters see them at night.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thanks! :-D

This is where the beaver lives (the first one to be seen in the Detroit River in almost 100 years). S/he has chosen some mighty fine real estate, in my opinion.

Gorgeous shot!

Thanks so much. I didn't know beaver were rare here--I've come from somewhere where they're more common--I'll have to learn more about this.
