“In the Tunnel” / Theme: So Hot
A little about this photo…
Here in Niagara (Ontario, Canada) we call electricity “hydro”. That’s because we get our power from a big waterfall. (If you guessed Niagara Falls, you’d be right.)
This is a shot from a visit to the newly-opened power station. And by newly-opened, I mean it’s open for tourists. The actual turbines are no longer in use, having closed a few years ago. (Not that we don’t still get our electricity from water… It’s just that the power is generated at a different facility.)
The coolest part of this tour is the elevator ride down to “the tunnel”. This tunnel carried the water out after it was used to generate power. On a hot, hot day, it was actually quite cold down here!
P.S. Thank you to the random tourists who are taking a selfie. You created a nice little silhouette!
