Green Grass, Blue Sky, Power Plant

Perhaps it's just me, but I happen to like this photo. Outstanding looking sky, puffy clouds, green field below, one very large smoke stack. Does it get any better than this? I was right, it's just me. Took this one while traveling on Sheppard Road in St Paul. This is the Xcel Energy Plant, used to be called the NSP plant until recently. 400 foot tall comes to mind on the height of the tower. I did brief google search, but couldn't find any specs related to the tower height.

One thing that strikes me is the ornate 'architectural' street light in front of Xcel industrial park.
