Energy Plant/Reflections

Now defunct coal-generated energy plant, Rochester, New York

On our recent trip to New York to visit a sick relative, we spent a couple of mornings out making photos.  (Hospital visiting hours didn't start till 11 AM.)

In this photo, I like the blues, greens and tans and the hard building bricks reflected in the soft water. It was an incredibly beautiful morning.

Great shot Cameragirl I love the look of old smoke stacks and the reflection is perfect.
I hope all is well with your relative. Take care Hug B

Your reflection shot is lovely, Camera Girl.
Its great that all the black soot at the top of the stack is not going into the air any more.

I hope all goes well for your family member.

A lovely serene photo and I'm so glad that coal-burning plant is shuttered!

Pat Tillett said...

VERY nice! I'm betting when that plant was running, it wasn't so pretty around it!

Perfect!

Sorry about your relative. Hope things get better.

Sylvia K said...

A perfect reflection it is! I love the soft ripple on the water and such beautiful blue skies! I'm so sorry to read about your relative and I do hope he/she improves and all goes well! Holding good thoughts for all of you! Have a good weekend!

Leora said...

Despite the industrial nature, it is beautiful! I am imaging it as a castle instead of a plant.

LONDONLULU said...

I do hope your relative is getting better, so sorry.
You somehow managed to make an old factory look beautiful :) Love the softness you described here...

Owen said...

Ah, but can one get inside the place to explore the defunct corridors and conveyors and smokestacks ? Looks like a great urban exploration site...

Sally in WA said...

Very nice reflective shot. Enjoy your weekend!

Linda said...

Just lovely - and even the clouds were cooperative - nice shot!

Michelle said...

It looks rather artistic in this light.

Randy said...

That's a nice one.

Malyss said...

Such deserted industrial places often make great subjects for photographers

Nefertiti said...

Jolie photo !

Phil said...

Nice picture. I thought it looked familiar as Battersea Power Station, London but seems there's a twin.

Spiderdama said...

This picture actually reminds me of my visit to Chernobyl..
Very nice reflection in the river.

Genie said...

A wonderful old structure, a gorgeous and colorful reflection in the water, and a family of ducks swimming out on a little outing. For what more could one ask when walking along with a camera. You definitely hit the jackpot with this one. Happy Sunday. genie

I love the water in the shot...I actually like the whole shot but I think it is the water that really pulls me in.
