    So I was planning on taking some film shots when I landed here last week but secca seemed quite keen on relentlesly stalking me about so I went digital and did the film at Crich quarry where I had time to set up and faff.

    This was a great womble around, really interesting site. Upper Heyford was US Air Force base for 40 years before closing in 1994. It housed the cold war strike bombers and the whole place is like a little America. US traffic lights, fire hydrants, barbers shops, church, baseball fields etc. Even the price on the petrol pumps is in dollars.. bizzare!

    The site I explored is the Military Police barrack, hospital (well sealed with bricks sadly) the sports areas and elementry schools which consisted of about 50 buildings all interconnected with corridores... the pictures dont realy do the size of the place justice.

    Not much in the way of processing, I just turned the white balance temp down whilst shooting to give it an RAF blue tint lol. Sorry for the lack of arty farty composition but secca was really earning his money :(

    Anyway, on with the photos.....
