Sizewell B from 23,000 ft

"Cabin crew, start of descent"... After crossing the Dutch coast, the WizzAir flight to London Luton begins to descend from cruising altitude. Weather over the North Sea is perfect for aerial photography. I have a window seat. The sight of the dome  of the Sizewell B nuclear power station, just north of Aldeburgh, prompted me to take this shot, and tweak it accordingly...

Looks chilling in black and white. The hemisphere covers the pressurised water reactor at Sizewell B, while in the foreground the rectangular buildings are the where the now-decommissioned Sizewell A, a Magnox reactor, operated from 1966 to 2006.

Archbishop of Canterbury supports nuclear option

"Only the pressurised water reactor," sighs Welby.

Washing the snow away
