Cockenzie Power Station

Today I took a quick trip along the coast to watch Cockenzie Power Station being demolished. Lots of people lined the shore with cameras at the ready, I just had my little hand held camera, but caught the demolition just as it happened..

I also sketched and took some photos of the power station before it blew up, and I love the strange gloomy light and reflections, so I’ll be painting this subject next week to mark this historic occassion!

Here are a few photos from the shore. It’ll be strange not to see this on the skyline…
