Refinery at dawn - Panoramic Photo

Stanlow Oil Refinery with its chimneys, cooling towers and myriad of lights is set against the deep blue of a dawn sky. The bright flame casts a fiery glow on the side of the cooling tower. We are looking from the west around half a mile from the complex. The Shell-owned Stanlow Manufacturing Complex is one of the biggest and most important in the UK.

The oil refinery has a unique visual fascination - At night it looks like a scaled down high-rise city.
