Nuclear Sunset

Grabbed a quick shot of the sun setting behind the plume coming off the cooling towers of Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago. The colors have not been altered, this was how the sky was lit up. Notice the shadow of the cloud cast upwards from the sun on the horizon, due to all the dust in the air, which was the reason for the vivid colors. Seems a more fitting scene for a tropical paradise rather than rural farmland.
