Ever wondered how clouds are made?
They are all done in my Backyard!
Well, it's not a cloud computing serverfarm but four coal plants doing power for 1/5 of the country.
The hole they dig is quite impressive, the hills on the right hand are what they pull out, minus the coal.

Camera was Nexus5 with SFOS 2.0.5.6

I love the layers of clouds -- or, um, energy byproduct vapor -- in that photo and the light and darkness inn them. Who doesn't like saying, "chiaroscuro"?

And what's growing all nice and green in the foreground? Winter wheat?

ed. . I even see corpuscular ("corpsuckyouler" and I said in my youth) rays and lens flare in the big(ger than my screen) version!

Yes, winter wheat. Apart from shitty air quality, green is the thing that we have loads of here.
Some local promotion, come visit the widest hole in europe. Sporting on of the largest vehicle on earth and visible from space if you have view on full europe

First post from a +1 year long lurker.
Taken with my Jolla1, standard settings, only cropped with Gimp.
Some light, some shadow, one (fake) rose stretching for the sunlight.

Sunlight filtered through faux stained glass.

OnePlus X running Sailfish OS, stock Sailfish camera.

Does it have a backstory? Why, yes, thanks for asking . . .

The decorative window hanging was created by my wife from an old window sash, self-adhesive plastic strips of "lead" and translucent enamel. The design is adapted from the leaded glass windows in the living room of our previous home, a 1920 Craftsman-style bungalow. The colors are from her imagination -- the originals are clear glass.

I like the way it adds color to the room, particularly in the brownish-grey of wintertime. The colorful stylized flowers make a nice contrast to the dreary landscape behind it, cheering me up a little when the winter sun shows itself.

Wow. Just wow. A shame that thing doesn't have its own theme song like its little brother (sister?)

Coincidentally, there's a similar artifact not far from here! In a now-exhausted strip mine rests Big Brutus, now the largest existing electric shovel in the world (the larger ones having been scrapped years ago). Although physically different and much smaller than that bucket-wheel monster of yours, it's still pretty big and served the same purpose: overburden removal from a surface coal mine. It was assembled in place, and was deemed economically impractical to move or to tear down and scrap after it finished its work in the mid 70s. It's now a museum and tourist attraction -- just one reason we're #46 in tourism in the 50 US states plus DC. Take that Nebraska!

@robthebold, I can't see your picture. After your edit, I can no longer see the link either.
