    WOW...what can I say other than that.

    This place is huge. Its a maze of gantries, ladders and walkways...and we picked an awesome day to go aswell, blue skies as far as the eye could see.

    Met up with Romanian1, Damon and Lawrence (nice one guys for showing me around) nice to put some faces to names.

    Had a top trip, its really dusty here though. Very very dusty!

    anywho, here's the pictures...

    Nice Pics mate, love number 7 of me lining a shot up, and here is that very shot.

    DSCF4696.jpg

    My 5th trip here i think and probably my last, although i did say that the last time and the time before that i think.

    Anyway,it seems i have a kind of love/hate relationship with this place, every time i go up the tower or up onto the higher walkways i get vertigo and every time i get down i vow im never going up again but like a true glutton for punishment im back for more every single time.

    I love you/hate you, this is the kind of thing im talking about, looking down from one of the higher walkways, if you could hook me up to a heart monitor at the point i took that pic i reckon id be hitting a good 160bpm.:D

    Anyway, ive subjected you to more than enough of my photos over the other trips so i'll keep it reasonably low key.

    Damon sets a shot up

    Damon and turk admire the view from the top of the tower whilst i cower in a corner:D

    And finally as it was such a strenuous explore we decided to have a quick sit down and watch the telly before we left. (left to right, Damon, Lawrence, Turk, me)

    Go on, I'll hijack this one as well since I'm here and can't be arsed to find Lawrence's thread (sorry mate)

    For anyone who intends to visit, I have two very important pieces of advice.

    1. Wallescote is now on borrowed time. We saw abundant evidence of cleanup crews bagging up all the loose soda ash on the gantries and walkways.

    2. Don't go with Turk, he's a right shot stealing bastard :p

    On with the show.....


    Taken BEFORE Turk robbed the shot with his mahooosive lens

    Random sack. Oddly not like a cement bag. This felt a lot like suede :confused:

    Obligatory Industry V Nature shot

    Attempt at HDR v.1 (a bit shit really, but it brought out the "lack of" details in the shadow)

    Erm.... cogs.... Big cogs..

    Time for a rest and a bit of TV. Turk wanted to watch Animal Planet. He was veto'd

    Eventually, the sun started to get to me...

    Attempt at HDR v.2 (a bit better)

    And an IR view of the live site across the road (not the live part of Wallescote, a completely different site)
