Symmetry

29 September 2012

With its two blocks of cooling towers, the main building at an angle, and the chimney to one side, the power station has little in the way of symmetry. This view from the east finally finds some sort of symmetry in the composition, with the main chimney balanced by the smaller chimney on the other side (which I believe is for the emergency generators that would have allowed the power station to restart from cold in the event of a grid failure). The plan of the site ensures the power station looks different from every angle, meaning it is always an interesting subject for photographs.
