I know that this one is a classic, no nothing new here i'm afraid.
It's a great place though, really nice, especially for a first underground explore. I really recommend it to first times like me.

I really had to try out my Lenser P14 :p
So I figure I'd take a little stroll in the überfamous botanic gardens station and the other tunnels of course.
but since I couldn't get in due to other people being arround the entrance I had first spotted, I decided to try out the kelvinhall section, found by chance (I had no clue it existed)
I really enjoyed myself being alone down there, you really dont see things the same way...

1.First glance

5. That's what you get when you party too hard in the tunnels...

That's it for the Kelvinhall section, I was very curious to see where it led but it was sealed by tons of concrete not so far away from the entrance...

So I went back to botanic gardens to check out another entrance

2. Its alive!

11. And to finish off, an abstract thingy (photoshop intoxication) that's totally irrelevant, but I thought it spoke quite good for the atmosphere of the place.

So finally I can say the L14 is just perfect, really easy to use (the quick focusing is just the best thing in the world, especially for lightpainting).
I couldn't think of a way to get in the kelvingrove section of the tunnel, which looks quite interesting, but I it shall be done. ^_^

Thanks for lookin'

Some pictures from the buchanan street tunnel (well the section that's left, going under the m8) I visited two weeks ago.
I thought there was no point in posting a new thread for these...

At the bottom of the pit (i'm wondering were that shaft leads...)

the colours and texture of the puddles were amazing, I'm gessing lot of iron in the water :S (didn't overdo the colours on the pictures)
here again, not one graff', what's wrong with street art in glasgow!

It's a shame I didn't take pictures of the entrance though, it's immmense! but hey, it's still an entrance :)
