Ratcliffe Power Station

Don't miss Kenna's recent work, including these spectacular photographs of Hokkaido – then go buy his 20-year retrospective. Earlier: Nuclear ambition].

Beautiful. Makes my hastily shot picture from the car window look a little feeble.

That's actually a nice picture, Rob. Looks like a film-still from some digital apocalypse. 29 Days Later.

Thanks, wonderful photos. They instantly reminded me of the cooling stations that I'd often pass by this summer going from Oxford to London.

Terrific!

Slightly off the point, but talking of accidental industrial aesthectics, I remember an incredible drive one night past the steelworks at Port Talbot, near-ish Cardiff. I'm sure somene else has witnessed the fire pouring (does fire pour?) from the chimneys against black sky...can't find any images, though....any ideas?

It goes without saying this blog is wonderful - thank you Geoff
