Other Majorca Army Base July 2013 (warning very pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Family holiday, got a day to myself with the camera

This place was huge and I know I only covered 40% ish, the site covers a few miles and in 35 degree heat I felt I had done enough in 3 hours, but maybe a return next year to cover the other bits.

I honestly stripped this down from 70+ plus shots

There was almost a higher ranking living area once passed the main gate

Then I found the long tunnel !!!

which became this, gotta say, I`m not a fan of underground and this was maybe 200m long with a few off shoots to the cliff sides

Ah nicely done there Mr B, great lookin set. I recognise an open gun emplacement there, most likely AA. The stores beneath will have been the magazine. Cordite storage with the racks being used for shells. The last few shots are of an artillery gun emplacement which would have sat on that central mount. The tunnels look a little narrow for air raid shelter although they'd have multiple uses. Most likely ammo/personal transport. Can you tell I've spent too much time reading about wartime batterys...

      Havent posted for what seems an eternity !
      So this was a trip to Bulgaria that 7 of us went on in March.
      Wont go into the history as its out there
      Small copy and paste from wiki
      Buzludzha is a historical peak in the Central Balkan Mountains, Bulgaria and is 1441 metres high (4728 ft). In 1868 it was the place of the final battle between Bulgarian rebels led by Hadji Dimitar and Stefan Karadzha and the Ottoman Empire.
      The Buzludzha Monument on the peak was built by the Bulgarian communist regime to commemorate the events in 1891 when the socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement with the founding of the Bulgarian Social Democratic Party, a fore-runner of the Bulgarian Communist Party. The Monument was opened in 1981.No longer maintained by the Bulgarian government, it has fallen into disuse.
      The monument was built at a cost of 14 186 000 leva.
      Buzludzha can be reached by two side roads from the Shipka Pass either a 16 km (10 mi) road from Kazanlak or a 12 km (7 mi) road coming north from Gabrovo.
      Now the monument is abandoned and vandalised. As the roof of the building is heavily damaged, the main entrance of the building has been closed for the public. (cough cough)
      So as said 7 of us went, 2 traveled from Glasgow (got knows why Nikon came up here to fly down to Stansted lol) met another 4 in Stansted then our final party member met us in Plovdiv after travelling from Belgium.
      So many laughs had on this trip, ranging from 1 party member going missing at night, after getting bladdered and trying 4x4`s in the pitch black, to absolute nonsense conversations after too much cheap booze.
      For me it was what a trip is all about, fun fun fun and seeing and shooting a pretty cool place.
      We spent 3 days/2 nights at the base of the monument, personally only went up twice, but I know others done it many times at all times of the day and night.
      Anyways, mixed bag, in the order they were shot























      Not happy up here !!! 200ft pitch black climb then 100ft on see-thru ladders, anyone who knows me knows I dont do heights !!
      Pretty chuffed I got to the top tbh, but bob hope I was going out on the ledge !!





      cheers
