Re: The Nenthead Mine Trip

Nice set of shots guys I wish I had been able to come along.

First photos upon entering the mine : I failed to spot a massive water drop just plopped onto my 20mm.

Abstracts!

Hah! The Water Drop Curse.

I could tell when my old Nikon had water on it, it stopped working

Re: The Nenthead Mine Trip

What a fantastic day and one I will never forget. It was great to meet up with a great bunch of guys, once again, and to add a few new faces too. Whether this was a photo trip or a team bonding/face your fears mission was not entirely apparent at the start, as my rising panic on entering the claustrophobic mine tunnels had me seriously considering abandoning all hope and buggering off back to the safety of the car.

A lot of deep breaths and a repeated chant of Greggy dont be a f**ny helped me to see this through and as the panic eased, I ended up thoroughly enjoying the whole experience and yes I would do it again.

Huge thanks to John for taking the time to put all this together - very much appreciated fella. Where we going next????

Heres a few pics:-

The tunnel


Ralph escaping the Trolls


John and Ulfric


The out door - I liked the out door


Shoring up - looks like some alien landscape to me


Ulfric on the barren landscape


Cheers

Greg

Re: The Nenthead Mine Trip

Hi there Greg!

Some great shots there, and proof that I can still (just about) go potholing! My favourites are the tunnel and the out door - both times I think that the Monochrome treatment works really well for the image. Great to have met you, and I second your question to John - Where next?

Cheers,

Ralph.

Re: The Nenthead Mine Trip

Only just caught up with this thread. Looks like you all had a great time and you've captured some great images here. Especially liked the walking home shots. I really got a feel for the trip and to be honest whilst it looks great I'm quite happy to be sitting in the warm looking in

So after being reminded of a scene from Alien, just before we ascended a dark dark set of stairs ;

Looking worried.


You did great.

Re: The Nenthead Mine Trip

Some really great shots guys. Perversely, as these shots show, the weather was perfect for outdoor shots of such a grim sort of place (grim but interesting I should say).

Near perfect - the number of my shots discarded due to raindrops means it wasn't quite perfect. Still a great day though and thoroughly enjoyed!
