Mountaintop Coal Mine

#MTR Mountaintop Removal Coal Mine. This is where electricity comes from. It's a repost of a panoramic image of the Kayford Mine near Charleston West Virginia originally posted here in late 2008. The image is a composite of 27 individual RAW frames from a Canon EOS 40D. This panoramic image was created (reprocessed) August 2013 using latest versions of Adobe Camera Raw and Image Merge in Photoshop CS6. The original images were taken in 2008 as part of a Society of Environmental Journalists field trip. #SEJ. A version of this image can be seen as background on the header for the Coal Tattoo blog written by Ken Ward Jr. of the Charleston, WV Gazette.
