Caption

Cooling towers of a coal-fired power station emitting clouds of water vapour. This type of power station burns coal to heat water. The resulting steam drives a turbine generator. The steam is then condensed by water in a secondary circuit and returned to be boiled again. The water in the secondary circuit is then cooled by spraying it into the towers. Photographed in the West Midlands, England.
