    Edit Photo Details Geothermal Power Station   #geothermal_power
    This picture was taken in Iceland at the Krafla geothermal power station which is situated near the Krafla volcano. Geothermal energy is collected from a series of well heads & piped to the power station where it is used to generate electricity. It is environmentally a clean process. My picture shows the huge collecting pipes in the foreground & the small power plant in the background. The photograph was taken at night & converted to B&W to overcome the orange cast of the site illumination.

    Fantastic photo of a geothermal power plant. I love use your use of slow shutter speed to make the steam more dramatic, which complements well with the collecting pipes rising over the road. Thank you for writing an informative caption that explains what I am looking at. Now I want to know more about geothermal energy.
