I managed to secure access to the inside of Aberthaw Power Station. Now she's all switched off and the process of changing the space from coal powered to greener cleaner energy has started. I know someone who acted as a fixer and was able to help me get access on a guided tour of the space. CCR Energy now own the site and were extremely helpful in the production of helping me with this ongoing project. As well as the images taken from the outside looking in, as well as these, the project will finish with photographing the staff past and present with listening and retelling their stories, taking their portrait and also using their historic images also.

All images are with the K1ii and the D FA 24-70mm

Another good set Gareth. My pick is the diaphragm pressure gauge in #12.

Best regards

Yes. The contrasting bright vs gloom works perfectly.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I especially like the images with the work folk in them. All are good but those especially appeal. Great set, Gareth. (Again.)
Be well, stay safe, but most of all, invest in memories

Iím surprised no-one has mentioned no. 15 in particular yet Gareth, looks like it could be an album cover! Good job

Thanks all, I'm super chuffed with them and so are CCR. Hopefully I'll get back in there soon.

Appreciate the comments
