Yea, it is a power generation plant. They're in the midst of converting it from sea-water cooling to a closed cooling system to comply with new regulations. You can see the previous smokestacks behind the new ones in front there. I think it's almost operational now.
I don't work there, but I think there is a certain functional beauty in those generation plants.
I've been wanting to ride the Virginia Creeper Trail and finally got the chance this past weekend.
I love the view from that bridge.
As to the previous post: Techno-grunge has a beauty all it's own, when you learn to appreciate the look of rusted steel, escaping steam, chipped concrete, and industrial lighting. It's interesting to sit on my roof and view the local Refineries at night, between the high-pressure sodium lighting, the occasional mercury lighting, and the light from the exhaust burn-offs...

DSCF0053.jpgAfter working a rest stop on the Starlight Spectacular Bike Ride for the last 5 years we decided to actually ride it! The Ride thru the Garden of Gods at night, with "NO external lights" was kinda spooky! The event was FUN but some of the "riders" were a bit insane about passing on both sides and racing in the dark! Those 2AM Pancakes sure tasted great, got home about 3:30AM. Sunday morning! The photo is my wife at the start line.
Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

Near the top of Matsuhime at 4:00am, about 40 km into a 210 km / 4,675 m climbing bike ride near Tokyo with two friends of mine:
^^this is a fabulous picture.
There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.
Keeping with the industrial photo theme, my ride this morning took me past one of the first Superfund sites. http://des.nh.gov/organization/divis...ies/gilson.htm
Not much to see, but the sad, run down look of the monitoring buildings always strikes me as appropriate.
