Power Station IM – Decay in Belgium

IM Power Station

After our rather disappointing start to our inaugural Belgium road trip we made our second stop at IM Power Station..now I’ve been up close and personnel with Battersea but this place was huge ! After entering via the very secure fence we walked around for ages to find a way in, interrupted a courting couple

Life a little Tilt Shifted

Bodiam Castle

Over the years I have been lucky enough to see some amazing places and locations. Some still stand, defying nature to reclaim them, others are now housing estates or Tesco mega stores. I am very much a SOOC person (straight out of camera) – if I had the time and inclination then I guess I’d

The Bloody Doors

First explore for a while..it was always going to be an awkward one this..for many reasons! After the usual meet up in some dodgy car park (that’s dodgy not dogging) this time at a more acceptable hour of the day we preceded to advance on our target in the usual ninja style..whilst some of the

Remembrance of things past

remington !

It should come as no surprise really…but after exploring many abandoned decaying houses it still comes as a shock to find so many items left behind by the former occupants. On this occasion a rather grand house decaying on a pretty busy well-kept Belgium street in a small town..the usual antics ensued to get in…but

Don’t let the sun shine down on me !

The sun shines through

Early morning trips out in the wilds of Kent can have their rewards. Hit this place nice and early on a Sunday morning, the early mist was just lifting to allow the sun to shine through, walking under the tree canopy we got see see some amazing shafts of light drifting down towards the ground.

Tunnels and Dark Places

Deep Shelter Stairs

Walking through a dark tunnel is an exciting experience. It is frightening to walk through a long tunnel. Life around seems to be silent and at a standstill. Even the beating of the heart sounds like pounding of a drum….yer right! Walking through, crawling down into, climbing up into a tunnel is hugely exciting!

Going out of my mine..

Dinas Silica Mine

well you would do…holidaying with my family! After a night of torrential non-stop rain the morning did not look like it was going to improve!…so with that in mind we decided to go underground – Dinas Silica Mine! After a small trek up the side of a mountain, being passed on the way by two

Those magnificent men….

Paragliding over Rhossili Bay

…in their flying machines! After a pleasant morning spent cliff hopping around the Worms Head by Rhossili Bay I saw these guys jumping off the hill above the beach. So…one long climb up another hill (Wales is just covered with them) I nestled down in the heather to take some action shots of these paragliders.

A mad day at the asylum

The Darkness of Severalls Asylum

We drove to Severalls from a sunny but chilly corner of Kent in lovely blue sunshine and arrived to find it dull and very much overcast! This should have been our first warning ! The grounds are covered in vicious bramblesThe fences are high and very pointyThe place is huge It’s falling downWe went on a day

Some classic days out exploring

The boys are back in town

There have been some classic moments over the past few years whilst hitting the road with a bunch of cool like minded explorers, across the UK into France and Belgium. We’ve had our ups and downs, run ins with crazy game keepers, the police and local peasants. Above all, we’ve laughed a lot and that’s

Long exposure to London

London Reflections

can be seriously be enjoyable…night time in London can be the bestSpent a few cool hours mooching about Canary Wharf in London on a pleasantly warm January night! The main question we asked ourselves was “where is everybody?”Even the security guard that we asked directions from was exceptionally pleasant !So..some long exposure shots of the

Box Quarry!

Cathedral at Box

After a manic 3 weeks at work it was time to kick back and have a laugh…mainly at the expense of Jimbo today, who, combined with a terrible weak bladder and the courage from a character from a Wizard of Oz story made the 5 odd hours getting lost under Wiltshire just about bearable! Box Mine…or
