The story behind this image

The now decommissioned Wylfa nuclear power station sits like a brooding menace on the otherwise wild and unspoilt north coast of Anglesey, North Wales.

Pictured here at dusk, with the cliffs of Llanbdrig in the foreground and a calm sea stretching towards the Skerries on the horizon, it's hard to believe the incredible amounts of power this facility has produced over the years.

At rest, the power station looks just like an ordinary factory unit.

Looks can be deceiving.
