Ever wondered what its like inside one of the huge powerstation cooling towers (or perhaps its just me). I took this inside a cooling tower at an abandoned power station in Belgium last year. The platform is approx 30 foot high with a number of small walkways leading into the centre. The concrete hole in the middle connects to a pipe which leads back to the PowerStation.

Well titled. I feel like I'm being pulled down the drain.

I'm afraid it's not just you, I've often wondered but thanks to you I now know.

Interesting shot, full of good composition.
