Crane was at the Deer Creek Station dedication ceremony held Aug. 16. He took hundreds of photos of the celebration. The photos feature not only the power plant, but also many employees, friends, family and neighbors, who gathered to celebrate. We wanted him to tell us about some of his favorites. Watch the photo essay.
