Newport, MN oil refinery at sunset
from Flickr user Zach Boumeester
Taken January 22, 2012, this photo of the oil refinery near Newport, Minnesota is particularly striking at sunset. With plumes of smoke and steam pouring from the refinery's stacks, the one on the photos' right side seems to almost be on fire. I am also fond of the steel boxwork on the bridge on the left side of the photo. For those reasons, as well as simply being a stunning photo, it earns the title of the best of MinnPics for January 2012.
