ECVB Panorama Collection

I posted this pano at the weekend on a pano Facebook page and a few people pointed out stitching errors that I'd not noticed previously, so I decided to have another go at it.After looking at the original I have to agree with them. This was one of the very first panorama images that I [...]

Bodmin Jail – Naval Wing

The most derelict part of the prison that is actually accessible is the Naval Wing. The wing was of course originally covered with an internal landing on each floor, initially for housing civilians then handed to the Navy. Supports for the landings this can be seen in the higher levels where wooden posts still remain. [...]

Horniman Museum – Animal Nitrate

Yesterday Viveca and I went to the Horniman Museum. The Horniman is a collection of artefacts from around the world that were collected by the family may years ago when they were tea traders. There is a really wide variety of objects here, from a huge collection of musical instruments to skulls and stuffed animals. [...]

ECVB – Cockerill

Here's my final panorama from ECVB - this is taken from the area furthest from the control room. More super pipes for you to scroll around. Hit the full screen icon (the right hand square) once the image has loaded  for the full screen experience.   Again this is processed in a similar [...]

ECVB – Organ Pipes

This is the money shot at ECVB. Right in front of the control room facing the four massive silver pipes that extend to the ceiling. From here the true majesty of the site can be seen, it really is awesome.   This image is made from 162 images,18 shots made up of 9 [...]

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 [...]

Sinteranlage – Shore Leave

Quick break form my GMdP series . . .  .I wanted to do something heavily processed for a change and make use of all the filter armament at my disposal. This is Sinteranlage a steel foundry in Germany. Built in 1920 and deserted 85 years later. The location is made up of two distinct parts [...]

Mortuary P – The Slabs

Here's one from the vaults - I was looking through some of my older photos and came across this one which I have processed before but thought it would be fun to have another go now that there are different skills in the bag. This is a mortuary at a hospital fairly close to where [...]

ECVB – The Pipes

Here's an image from ECVB - the derelict power station in Belgium. This is truly one of my urbex high points. The site is massive with loads of rusty pipes. Its on a grand scale too - over 10 floors I would guess.I was exploring alone, in a foreign country knowing that there was security [...]

Dungeness – FE119 – Gone Fishing

A welcome return to Dungeness images. I seem to have hit everything I wanted on this day out - images that I am very happy with that are in focus and fairly well composed. What really makes this set though is the light. Its not really something that I have thought about that much before. [...]
