Cotton and Coal

Saturday, October 13, 2012

While on assignment for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, my travels took me through some of the more rural parts of Georgia. Driving back roads from Rockmart towards Canton I kept passing fields of vegetables and cotton. As I neared Cartersville I was greeted by a peculiar sight. Large smoke stacks could be seen in the distance and as I drew closer to Plant Bowen. The plant, operated by Georgia Power, is one of the largest coal-fired power stations in the nation. Plant Bowen produces 3,499 megawatts of energy. I had to stop to photograph the juxtaposition between the fields of cotton that grew nearby and the man made power station. These are two of my favorites.

Cotton fields stretch out before Plant Bowen in Euharlee, Georgia. Plant Bowen is a coal-fired power station that produces 3,499 megawatts of energy.
