On our drive back from Phillip Island we had to take a detour and got a little lost, we came across this town called Morwell thats big on power stations and mining. The place is full of towers which let off huge plumes of steam, as you can see in the distance, and actually create their own eco systems. I love the way the tree is leaning towards the power station in the background. I feel this is one of my best panoramic images, it was totally unplanned and found by accident and has such meaning, aside from being just a purely beautiful image in its own right. I've called it 'Silent Spring' as a nod to Rachel Carson's revolutionary book released in the 60s which is credited with launching the environmental movement
