Man-Made Clouds And The Moon

To start the new layout with, here are a couple of shots with man-made clouds and the Moon. These clouds are actually almost to beautiful to identify them as man-made, but in truth, their origin isn´t. They are produced – during clear weather – by the cooling tower of the nuclear power plant of the city of Ohu, just a few km away from Landshut, Bavaria. I´d rather photograph natural clouds coupled with the Moon, but even knowing that these clouds are man-made, they have been way to photogenic to be ignored. Reactor block 1 has been shut down last year due to the incidents at Fukushima, block 2 is supposed to run until 2022. Until then, let´s make the best out of it ….Enjoy (the images)! 



Summer last year: full Moon around the 35 km far away man-made clouds…



Some minutes later and a raven coming through…



The 92.7% full Moon above the nuclear power plant of Ohu, Bavaria


The last rays of the sun lit the clouds and the Moon, while the ground is already in shades…


“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
(Rabindranath Tagore, Indian Poet, 1861-1941)
