    Default (Permission Visit) Drax Power Station - Yorkshire - Sept 2016


    I know I know… two permission visits in four years… this is becoming a habit… last one I promise but having only been in Lostock which is all but empty I felt like a kid in a sweet shop in this place… mods please delete if not appropriate.

    On site with other engineers earlier in the month to look at the biomass domes and the escort we had said ‘’Bet tha’d like to go and look at the bashers, boilers and bines''

    A7s & 35mm f1.4

    Lovely stuff - particularly the evening photos.

    Difficult to judge size sometimes but to give an odd perspective - the flue gas pipes in the second set of photos would fit the channel tunnel in...with room to spare ;-)

    Thanks mate.. I spent twenty minutes on google maps trying to find water anywhere near it in the pitch black… which is odd given it’s a blood power station with a direct connection to the river Ouse lol!!

    Thanks Druid…. Yeah could have done with getting some workers in for perspective as its incomprehensibly enormous lol but that’s the bizarre thing at night, it’s an absolute ghost ship… didn’t see a single person in the whole building… it’s just this giant autonomous collection of enormous kit hammering away self-generating 8% of the UK’s electric with a few guys upstairs clicking mice lol
