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 [...]

Back On It!

After a bit of a hiatus I am back on it. I've had a week or so off social media and blogging whilst out in France with friends. Its the first holiday that I've had in over five years where I've done 'nothing'. We sat by the pool, drank great wine, eat wonderful food and [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

SNBC – Thomas Went Bad

During our summer trip earlier my friend and I returned to a location that we had both been to separately the year before - SNBC train graveyard. This is a great little explore - easy access and it seemed that the staff there or there about not really giving and regard to us as we [...]

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. [...]

Runwell – Switch ONE

The decay at Runwell Asylum is pretty epic in places. Peeling paint all over the place indicating how open to the elements its been here in the past. Now safely boarded up though keeping the majority of the rain, wind and snow out of the main building. I was really taken by this switch, the [...]

La Porte Earthworks AKA ‘Fullers’ – Spine

Another more processed image from Fullers. I spotted this image right a the start of the explore and knew what to do with it, however after putting the brackets through Photomatix I wasn't happy with the results, the window at the back was too blown out and distracted from what I was trying to achieve. [...]
