2012, Day 286 - Straining

Today I had an epic day of shooting with Brian Matiash, Nicole S Young, Arno Jenkins, Christopher Germano, Brian Bonham, Amy Heiden, Joe Azure, and Tressa Crozier at the Satsop Nuclear Power Plant.  Construction started in the early 80s and but the project was abandoned and is now used as an industrial park.  The structures still stand although some components are being removed for its scrap value.  It's too bad that it cannot be better preserved but at the same time remarkable that it is preserved at all.

This is a composite of the last photos of the day inside the unfinished second cooling tower.  The weather was great and terrible at the same time because it was raining lightly and we had low hanging fog all day but it lends a dreamy quality to the photos.  Unfortunately it also means that we all got pretty we and that many of the outdoor photo opportunities couldn't be fully realized.  Oh well, it was still tons of fun and it gives us all an excuse to return.
