Beautiful scene. I know this looks very scary- yet it is just steam, i.e. water rising into the sky.

Again though cracking shot. Just shows how much steam is churned out of these power plants!

Why not, this is nothing but pure water vapor, Nuclear energy is on of the cleanest form of energy production method. Excellent shot Fyodor, Thanks for sharing.

What an amazing effect. Is the cloud overlapping the steam, or is it actually all from the plant?

And there's nothing bad for the environment here, it's just steam from the cooling tower.

Note that the cloud is just water vapor and no CO2 involved. Nuclear power plants don't create greenhouse gasses. Nice pic anyways.

Don't listen to the poorly informed. It is just steam which is water vapor. Perfectly harmless to the environment.

Cool shot, i love how you really see th steam creates clouds. Thet's right, the steam is harmless itself, but that is not enterily true, the steam produced clouds shades the ground with the same effects that normal clouds do, and chilles the ground. All this local produced clouds will generate local weather interferences. Also if cooler air blows in the steam clousd will become rain. It's easy to say steam is harmless, but it can cause chain effects that would not be there.

Nuclear powerplant? rubbish! It's the cloud factory! where else would clouds come from?!

Beautiful picture, and all that aside, even though it is only steam coming out of the power plant's cooling tower, and though steam is less of a pollutant than is created when burning fossil fuels, such plants have also been shown to have an effect on global warming. The steam, can still create a greenhouse effect, not to mention the actual heat created by the plant itself.

Amazing photo. Actually can counter global warming, since clouds reflect sunlight away from the lower atmosphere.
