Industry vs. Nature

I’ve spent a lot of time the last few weeks riding the Missouri Riverfront Trail system. Mostly north of the city, exploring places I haven’t been. While up there, something struck me visually. The battle between industry and nature. You can be riding/walking along a peaceful gravel/paved trail and look south and see smokestacks, or meandering through a dense wooded area surrounded by chain link fences and see heavy machinery. This is nothing new, this isn’t something I haven’t paid attention to before. I would much rather look out off a trail and see solar panels or windmills over smokestacks. My lens is my voice and I will continue to shoot and showcase this battle. Let’s see mother nature win!
