Seen below is the unfinished reactor core of a nuclear power plant. I had visited this place before, and posted about it in more detail in this previous post. But after that initial exploration, I began visualizing a shot that wasn’t possible on that first visit. At a different time of year, the sun would line up perfectly with the architecture of the plant and, possibly, make for a dramatic framing.
When another road trip presented an opportunity to stop by, I jumped at the chance. I knew when the sun would be in the right spot, and got in early enough to get to the right spot and set up. Like most of the pre-concieved photos I’ve shot, I’m not quite sure I’m satisfied with the outcome. Maybe when you start with a concept you’ll find yourself chasing an elusive ideal.
Regardless, it was a fun shoot. I’ll leave it to the viewer to judge how the shot came out.
