Coal-fired power station. This power station burns coal to heat water. The resulting steam drives a turbine generator and produces electricity. Smoke (left) is rising from one of the chimneystacks, while the large white cloud (right) is water vapour from the cooling towers. Photographed in Voerde, Germany, in December 2007.
