Fiddler's Ferry Power Station, NW England

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 23 December 2007 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

Following on from the theme of the last few days this is the last in a small series of photos showing some of the Power Stations in the North of England. This one is of the cooling towers at Fiddler's Ferry Power Station in North West England.

It's loosely inspired by the work of the famous English Photographer Michael Kenna and the series of images that he took of Ratcliffe Power Station between 1984 and 2003 : Michael Kenna

I don't think it is a power plant. I think it is a cloud factory.
