A little different shot than my usual nature filled images. The common thread, I suppose, being that this was taken from the Larry Scott Trail. Port Townsend paper is the largest employer in Jefferson County.
I know there will be mixed reactions to this image … with its industrial topic and the venting of vapors into the atmosphere. But the exhaust plume on the right has particularly interesting textures.
I like this for an example of industry. And what is put into the air. We tend to forget the multitudes of industries in the U.S. spewing out pollutants.
When I moved to Everett in 1970 to go to the community college, the smell of the mill was ever present. I don’t know if it was toxic but I found the smell interesting.
