A shot from a trip out with tandberg and RichSR Smile

It's one of my fave locations because of how the sun sets behind the towers and illuminates the plumes of steam, which in turn all get reflected in the Aire navigation below.

It can be truly amazing some nights.

Was ok this night, not exiting enough for my companions to get their cameras out though Smile
