Don Porter‘s stunning photograph of the switchyard at the Churchill power plant in Mason City, Nev. was awarded third place in the IBEW’s national photo competition.
Porter, a member of Local 1245 employed at NV Energy, captured this shot one evening at sunset. The image is a composite of five separate shots, but Porter emphasizes the authenticity of the sky’s coloring. The red wasn’t exaggerated,” he said. That’s what you see out here for a few minutes. I wanted to capture the feeling of being on something of an alien world.”
