A Nuclear Horizon

A Nuclear Horizon, originally uploaded by TomRaven.

"The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be."
Douglas Adams (The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time )

The Dungeness Nuclear Power Plant can be seen on the horizon of this shot taken from East Hill, Hastings.

Dedicated to all those who have suffered due to the Fukushima I nuclear accidents and all those who will suffer over the decades to come. While the accidents have largely disappeared from our News channels the radiation they leave behind will take many hundreds of years to disappear.

For all those who think it could not happen here... It is worth remembering that Dungeness is built on a low shingle beach created by one of the massive violent storms that hit this area every now and again.
