Drax Power Station

 

By way of contrast to the walk around the York Snickelways, here are a few pictures from a recent tour of Drax Power Station.

 

Just down the road from me, it supplies between 6 - 9% of the nation's electricity needs depending upon how sunny or windy it is that day. On the evening of my visit it was kicking out enough for about 3m homes, and running on bio-mass rather than coal.

 

This was a visit organised for members of Selby Camera Club so there were about 20 of us, bristling with cameras and lenses, all trying to find a unique shot. This was my attempt to be a bit different.

I like this angle - I can see what you mean about trying to find an original shot. I'm pleased it's running on bio-mass (the power station... not you - or your camera!)

I think you succeeded Paul, a wonderful image here
Terrific image Paul. Learning that you belong to a camera club explains a lot about many of the photos you post, I will take a look at your clubs website later on, this is the club I belong to http://www.shepshedcameraclub.co.uk/ only 40+ years old though.
