    Crich Quarry (Plant and Excavation) Derbyshire - February 2013

    So then... slightly odd explore in that I CALLED SECURITY whilst there! Turns out that the tram museum next door put a big metal gate accross the access road and lock it at 4pm... then go home leaving me trapped inside with the car lol... following a slightly awkward telephone call to security on the 0800 number blazened accross the sign on the gate a very nice chap turned up in a white van and let me out an hour later, no questions asked.. all very odd.

    I took these using my trusty old Canon AV-1 film camera, an out of date roll of Fuji Velivia, a 35mm f2.0 and a 20mm 2.8. They have what I thought was a bit of an odd colour cast, probably due to the film being out of date.. but I actualy quite like it so will use the other 12 rolls I have at some point. Was nice to have the wait for them to arrive through the post and see how they turned out. Out of the 36 I took, this 20 were the best of the bunch, the rest were a bit overexposed. Ohh and I dont have a scanner so I had to photo the photos with the 7D with a bit of vignette added in photoplop :p

    The quarry has been closed about two years and has no vandalism, theft or beer cans strewn.. probably due to its remote location, but is a lovely explore and worth the gawps fromt he people taking tram rides past about twenty feet away!

    Cheers for looking.
