ECVB – Turbine Hall

Here's the turbine hall at ECVB. Compared to the rest of the facility its pretty sparse. All of the interesting stuff is below. There are two turbines housed in here, one at the far end of the hall transversely angled to the one below. I'll not say much about this and let the images do [...]

ECVB – The Cathedral

Since the first time I went to ECVB  on a solo trip quite some time ago I have wanted to do a series of panoramas of this awesome location. The main hall is so vast that to take simple images just does not do it justice. When one arrives in here initially there is a [...]

ECVB – The Sky is the Limit

This weekend we took a trip to Belgium. I've been previously a month or so ago and was quite unsuccessful at getting the images that I wanted, I was after some panorama images of the turbine hall, but unfortunately wasn't well enough practised with the pano head so ended up coming away empty handed in [...]

Liège-Guillemins Station

Liège-Guillemins Station was built in 2009 by architect Santiago Calatrava. It's a very impressive structure, more so in in evening when it is deserted and lit. the stark white beams and supports looking somewhat futuristic and life like. It certainly felt organic and as if the whole structure could morph into something totally different. I'm [...]

Sheffield – Tool Makers

Our trips to Sheffield weren't all hunting for cool graf in the city. We had another location to try and search out. The tool makers was established here in the 1860's and closed around 10 years ago. The owners manufactured tools for cutting of leather and tools for making shoes.   The location was very [...]

Zeche X – Locker Room

Another from the locker room, small lockers where the miners may have kept their positions, clothes being in the birdcages room. We walked through here before moving on to the birdcages knowing that we would return for the final shots of the location. Again this was taken with the 60mm macro, processed with Photomatix and [...]

Zeche X – The Tin

After a little diversion from the usual industry I'm back on it and will be posting images from Germany and Belgium again.It was fun doing the recent stuff, but I felt that it was time for a change so I have ventured back into the (almost) archives. This image is from the battery room at [...]

Zeche W – The Birdcages II

After an absence of around a week (of which I hope you'll forgive me) I intend to come back with something a bit special. German mines have locker rooms that are adorned with what look to be birdcages. These are actually hooks for the miners to hang their clothes on while they are at work. [...]

Pyestock – Metal on Metal

Here's the inside of Cell 4 at NGTE, this testing facility was used to test the jet engines for Concord. If you look closely you can see the props still left for Sahara on one of the pipes on the right. The first time I walked into this area I was TOTALLY awestruck at the [...]
