Pic Of The Week (24/2012) – A Look Into Hell…

Here another image from the ‘Republica’ coal-fired power plant in Pernik, western Bulgaria:

Turning the original shot into black-and-white really makes it look like the devil’s furnace!

It is easy to believe that this power plant is one of the largest single polluters of air and water in Europe (in fact it seems that only Chernobyl is more polluted than Pernik).

For more information about the ‘Republica’ power plant and the city of Pernik have a look at this article. You can find a full image gallery with more shots from Pernik on my website.
