Memory lane (2)

A picture today, instead of a photograph.



The picture is “long time gone” by Jack Vettriano (1998). 

It’s a favourite of mine, because in the background is Methil Power Station as seen from Leven beachfront. The power station was the dominating presence at the end of Leven beach where we played as children and where we took our own children when they were young. 

Methil Power Station was decommissioned in 2000. The main building was demolished on 20th April 2011 and the chimney stack on 8th June 2011, as part of the ongoing regeneration of the area. While the view from the beach is greatly improved without the power station, the seascape seems rather alien to me now it is gone.
