Tufts Cove Generating Station
Halifax has a series of unmistakable landmarks which include two bridges, a town clock and Citadel Hill to name a few. However, towering 157 meters high are the unmistakable smokestacks from the Tufts Cove Generating Station. On the Dartmouth side of the harbour, it was only a quick trip from my house. To get these images, I used a polarizer to help enhance the contrast. Most effective when used 90 degrees to the sun, a polarizer will help darken the sky, reduce reflections and in this case, brighten the white smoke. The first image is a view from Halifax while the others are from Tufts Cove.
While I was taking these photos someone told me he really liked my car and thought it was very sporty looking. I drive an Optra. The only thing sporty about my Optra are my track pants! I chose that moment as a good time to leave...
