Connecticut Drone Photography: PSEG Smokestack In Bridgeport

Updated: Jun 29, 2021

The universe itself speaks of imagery mixed with creativity, and within us lies the insatiable desire to explore our world.

As a young boy, I would look outside the window of my parent's car and be fascinated by what I saw- the beauty of the city. I kept those images in my head for long and always looked out for an opportunity to see more. (I guess it birthed my passion for photography)

Bridgeport, CT, mainly, is a beauty to behold! A historic Seaport City, fondly called "Park City" because of its large recreational areas, like Seaside Park, Pleasure Beach, and Pocket Beaches in most neighborhoods; but that's not all there are several other monuments!

Now that I offer drone imaging services in CT, I'm able to capture these monuments from different perspectives and document them in my portfolio.

I recently returned to a location I visited during childhood to take stunning pictures at an elevated height: PSEG Smokestack, Bridgeport.

This 495 ft smokestack protruding from a coal-powered plant has been a landmark of Bridgeport for many years. With its trademark white and red stripes, this edifice is a beauty to behold!

An Uncertain Future

Due to environmental challenges, the coal-powered plant brings, replaced with a new gas-powered plant, which is more environment-friendly. A new 302 ft smokestack protrudes from the gas-powered plant, next to the former smokestack.

The future of the coal-powered 500 ft tall edifice remains unclear; I'm not sure if it will be demolished or preserved. Whatever the case may be, one thing for sure is that its iconic red and white stripes have been a part of Bridgeport's history and will always be in the heart of its residents.

I took some stunning aerial photos of this historical beauty with my drone at different perspectives.
