I had a job interview in Suffolk today so took advantage and drove up the coast to Sizewell to have a look at the Nuclear Power Station there.
I spent a lot of my youth listening to various punk bands rail against nuclear power and, particularly Sizewell B, which was being built in the mid 80’s, so it was very interesting for me to visit, and I’m glad I did. It’s a bit of a photographers dream the area, you have the nuclear power plants (Sizewell A and Sizewell B), you have the sea, you have a couple of, on first glance, oil rigs close in, lots of rare plants and then various fishing boats and winding paraphernalia to photograph.
The weather wasn’t the best today…but that helped – the dark clouds giving a more oppressive feeling to the area…and it only rained little on me, which is always good.
Todays main picture is a long exposure of these two off-shore platforms looking away from the power station.
This photograph shows both Sizewell A (on the left) and Sizewell B (on the right)
And here we have Sizewell A in the background and Sizewell T(ea) in the middle ground
