Last month after our visit to Padre Pio Shrine in Barto, PA, few of us decided to stop by Philadelphia Premium Outlets at Limerick, PA. Personally, I don’t like going to the outlets not unless it’s electronics or anything camera related.

The drive to Barto along Route 422 West, I noticed these two huge structures spouting white smoke or should I say steam. The structures look intimidating from a distance and thinking that they are nuclear reactors it makes it even scarier. Then when we drove to the outlet, those huge structures are a lot bigger because they are a few miles away from the outlet. The photo above was taken from the parking lot facing the reactors.

I know that the white smoke coming out of those two huge stacks are steam generated from water used to cool the reactors, but I decided to process them darker because of what they represent. Though they give 0 carbon footprint compared to other energy resources, they pose a potential threat like the one in Chernobyl or the Three Mile Island.
