Chimneys have traditionally been built of brick, both in small and large buildings. Early chimneys were of a simple brick construction. Later chimneys were constructed by placing the bricks around tile liners. To control downdrafts venting caps (often called chimney pots) with a variety of designs are sometimes placed on the top of chimneys.(wikipedia)

Cottam is a 2000 MW coal fired power station in Nottinghamshire. The 8 distinctively shaped hyperbolic concrete cooling chimneys are the main subject of the photo but in the background you can also see the taller smoke plume coming from the main boiler chimney. This photo is inspired by the work of the fine art photographer Michael Kenna.
