Looming above the residential landscape, the cooling towers of Ferrybridge Power Station are the largest of their kind in Europe. A coal-fired power station, and one of fourteen in the UK before its closure in early 2016, Ferrybridge C employed over 800 people during the height of its operations. It was considered no longer economically viable by its owners to keep the power station open. Its closure on 31 March 2016 removed 3.4GW of capacity—about 4 per cent of the country’s total—and followed the closure in late 2015 of Kellingley Colliery, Britain’s last deep-coal mine, just a few miles down the road. The UK government plans to phase out unabated coal-fired power stations by 2025. However, fears that the country will be unable to maintain secure electricity supplies could spell trouble for coal phase-out plans.

Top Shot: Escape Flight | Photograph by Nikolay Nikolov
#YourShotPhotographer Nikolay Nikolov captured this moment of two crows making their escape from a golden jackal. “The expression on the face of the jackal is so intense,” writes Your Shot Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams), who selected this image for the January 22, 2018. “Great work following the action with your lens and capturing this excellent wildlife photograph. The two crows are so close together, but there is a small space where the jackal’s face is revealed which is great.”

Photo by @danwestergren // #sponsored by @visit_arizona // Just below Hoover Dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River is Robert Finlay, owner of Kayak Lake Mead paddles out of Emerald Cove. This small cave is about 1/2 hour kayak from the Willow Cove Marina and if you time your visit just right, you’ll find the early afternoon sun shining into the cave, lighting up incredibly green grass growing on the bottom of the river. // Even once you see it in person, you may still doubt it’s real. Plan your [un]real Arizona getaway. #VisitArizona
