Urban landscapes: the top of the station

SIR ADAM BECK HYDROELECTRIC GENERATING STATIONS, NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO

I drove past this structure as daylight was approaching and loved the lighting. The key was finding a good viewpoint to include the building, the steel towers and the road, then waiting for traffic to give me good lines of light in a long exposure.
You’re just seeing a tiny fraction of one of the two generating stations; there are several operated by the province of Ontario and New York State, which share the Niagara River far below this road and building.
Sir Adam Beck (1857-1925) was a politician and founder of the Hydro-Electric Commission of Ontario, later  known as Ontario Hydro.
