Okay, this one's a little obscure - but I figure if someone can post Tallinn, I can do this place.

Sudbury, Ontario?

If not that, I would guess Butte, Montana or El Paso

Holy SH*T!

You got it on the first guess - it is indeed Sudbury, Ontario.

Site of my upcoming nuptials.

A case of northern red maple - yum!

Well, I assumed Ontario. And the only city in Ontario "notorious" for a smelter stack is Sudbury. Never been there (I like visiting obscure places, but I've only been in the Lake Erie crescent in Ontario).

Is it true that there is a large landscape "dead zone" around the nickel smelter? :(

There used to be, but Sudbury has really made an effort to re-green itself. There's now talk of preserving some of the fast-disappearing "dead zone". The stack you see in the pic is largely responsible for the recovery - they built it so high the pollution now lands a couple of hundred kilometres downwind...

I can attest to that. During the last month we have had pollution attributted to Ontario and the New England States.
