  1. One of my favourites during our trip through Italy. A beautiful chapel and when the sun shines you see the beautiful colors inside, it makes you speechless... #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9
  2. The Blue Chapel forms part of a monastery in Italy. The area above the altar is painted blue and the high level windows flood the space with light and create an amazing blue glow behind a suspended figure of Jesus on a cross. The chapel is beautiful. It is a large space with ornate decorations, and all the seats are still in place. Alcoves at either side contain figures of people in glass boxes. The rest of the monastery is quite stripped and decaying. There are a large number of rooms in the building which would have mainly been used as living quarters.

  3. Belgium Blue Lagoon (visit 2015)

    A fairly large mine in belgium with some blue water in it , I did a lot of walking and exploring and i actually don't have much pics from here .. But a revisit will surely be planned as this is really cool to explore , been doing more and more underground explores lately and I like it But I'm very inexperienced in underground explores so sometimes I think i'm going to get lost and stuff ... This was also the case in this one, at first I was big mouthing my friends this isn't big , but several hours later hahahaah Blue Lagoon by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue Lagoon by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue Lagoon by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue Lagoon by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue Lagoon by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue Lagoon by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue Lagoon by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr
  4. Belgium Blue powerplant

    I really love this kind of explores , huge industry powerplants and ..... WHen I got there I already knew the site , I've been there 3 times, but it was the first time I managed to get in this part . After a couple of hours we heared some noise , opened a door and BAM there was a security dude right in front of me luckily the door was an emergency door and could only be opened from my side. So I quickly closed it and searched my girlfriend and escaped !! We didn't get caught !! :) Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr Blue PowerPlant by Vancolen Kevin, on Flickr
  5. Italy The Blue Chapel... June '15

    More Italian goodness from our recent 'Tour di Bastardi' A lovely chapel with a blue hue, hence the name, tucked away in a ridiculously beautiful part of the world!! Attached to what I presume was maybe a seminary? Heres some pics... Thanks for lookin' in...
  6. Explore: Well this was a last minute day trip to belgium with a non-member. Was a stupidly long day, but I'm so glad I went. One of the places we visited was the Blue Christ Church. Such a lovely place, despite the overwhelming smell of pigeon shit! Bumped into some fellow explorers, but unfortunately were't members on here I was a bit like a kid on christmas with it being my first euro trip, so got a little snap happy and that definitely reflects within the quality of my shots, but was had an amazing time nonetheless! Pictures... As always, thanks for looking!
  7. Explored with Raz & a non member Bit of history from Raz (being an info pirate again) Designed by JB Chantrell, St. Paul's was completed in 1846 in an Early English style featuring a large gothic tower overlooking the village of Denholme. The constructions of the church cost £3,700 in total, a number that would have been significantly higher if not for the members of the parish contributing to the construction in their spare time. St Paul's Church was granted grade II listed status meaning that it may not be demolished, extended, or altered without special permission from the local planning authority, but in 1997, soon after it's 150th anniversary the ceiling and roof were deemed unsafe and the church closed soon after this for repairs. Upon further inspection the repairs needed were found to be extensive and with great reluctance the building and part of the churchyard were put up for sale. Although the old church building is now closed (and ruined) the graveyard is still open to new burials. Explore; So this old girl has been on the list for quite some time now but has always been put off for other things. While sploring an old quarry in the area we decided to take a wander over. As you can see the place is wrecked but that roof is beautiful Photos; Quality isn't the best because i've taken them off my facebook page; my camera decided to reformat the memory card and relieve me of 600 photos. Dont you just love technology!! As always, thanks for looking

  9. 1st Euro jaunt of 2015 and Me, Darbians and a non member kicked off the silly seasons proceedings with this BELTER!! Be forwarned... Theres a fair few pics! ...The Blue Power Station... ... Thanks for lookin' in!
  10. This place has been dubbed various names on the internets but I quite like the name Blue Church so I'll stick with that one. After doing the mint St. Saviours we headed towards the looming spire of what's been named 'Blue Church' or 'Miranda Church' owing to it's Chateau Noisy-esque blue vaulted ceiling. This place, comparatively, is a total ruin but shows what I deem to be a wonderful level of dereliction following it's closure in 1997. Myself and Landie Man spent a long time here as I think he enjoyed it as much as I did. The windy, rainy weather certainly gave this place a desolate feeling as well. Standing right at the back of the balcony in the alcove, with the wind blowing a gale behind me and a big drop through a large hole down to the ground floor in front of me was a bit of an arse-twitcher... Thanks for looking, more here as always https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157650369869003
  11. If you ever go on a mini tour, one of the things that pretty much no one mentions is sleep, or lack thereof. The benefit is that when one gets back to work, it feels as though one's had a couple of weeks off, whereas the reality is it has been a couple of days. So much is packed in, and so little sleep, but always worth it to be honest. The reason I mention this is because although Blue Chapel was on the list, we figured on going to another site instead. Selected that place from the pre-loaded TomTom and off we went. It was only when we arrived that we realised that actually we were at Blue Chapel. Not that it was a problem of course, as it was still a place we wanted. A quick walk around and we couldn't see a viable entry point. We were on the point of calling it a day when something from my dim and distant childhood surfaced. Something along the lines of, if you can fit an arm and head through a gap, the rest of your body can follow. Now this might be true for a child, or someone flexible without the added bodily development a few beers and burgers brings. Long story short... I was in. Phew. No need to call for an ambulance or fire brigade. Luckily. I had a look around the rest of the site, aiming to leave the chapel until last. There isn't much there to be honest, I was intrigued to spot an internal door with a built in letter box. Clearly someone too important to go and get their own mail!!! Upstairs, other than empty rooms and corridors, access to the loft Judging by the state of the roof, it won't be long before this place is totally lost They clearly liked a drink or four too With light fading fast, I made my way back downstairs to the Chapel, and the view that lends itself to the name of this location It would have been good to get there earlier to be honest, but I am glad we made it there. Although at this level, it all looks pretty sound, knowing the state of the roof, it can't stay this way for long, unless some work is done to save it... Thanks for viewing, there are a couple more shots in my Flickr album
  12. Evening all, Another report this weekend from a brief visit at the end of the day. The light was leaving us fast and we had to be quick as we had about an hours worth of daylight left to shoot this place. We had a bit of a drive to get to the last 2 day's worth of locations that we had planned for and this was on the way. Not sure when it was vacated but there was a lot of structural damage due to the earthquakes that Italy can experience and evidence of that was littered throughout this place. Not a lot left to photograph and the majority was either the corridors or the separate chapel which gives this locations it's name. On with the photos. Thanks for looking in.
  13. More like Bird Poop Church, because goddamn, the crap's everywhere. Both literally. Planned to go there tomorrow, because of a friend who didn't have time. But they reported sun today and rain tomorrow, so tough luck (But we'll pass by it tomorrow again, anyway.) A bunch of pigeons were flying about and perching here and there on Blue Jesus. My shutter button must sound like the Horns of Jericho, tho, because these asshole birds scrammed everytime I wanted to push it. What I'm wondering tho is what the point of the construction boxes in front of the church is. They've been on the rather old Streetview imagery and are still there now. Anyway, here's the haul: 1.

  14. Belgium Blue Christ Church July 2014

    had a great weekend of non stop exploring (between naps) with 2 great guys !! This was (I think) my favourite location of the entire trip, the level of decay and the ambiance of the place was exactly what I was after and boy did it deliver. No history for obvious reasons but enjoy Bit of 10-20mm and a bit of 60mm, could have spent all day in here but dam was it hot and other locations had us calling yes ok my new tripod finally allowed me to do straight up shooting (cough cough http://redsnapperuk.com/camera-accessories/RSF-284M___RSH-61_Ball_Head.html) Cheers The Baron
