« on: August 26, 2019, 14:57:52 »
Nuclear facility outside of Chinon on the river Loire, France.

I have taken a number of pictures  of this power plant on my latest stay in France.
Weather conditions were different since i took them over a couple of days.

This is only one side of the complex going round there are many more buildings and still expanding as it seems.
Thanks John.

An interesting series Fons - thanks for sharing. 

In this day and age I am surprised that one can get so close to a nuclear facility and be allowed to photograph it.
