    Luxembourg Powerplant X (05/2021)

    It's been a while since my last post to this forum. I hope you are all doing well and that the covid madness didn't cause you any permanent damage... I wanted to share with you these photos of a beautiful abandoned power plant. we managed to squeeze in this visit a little over a year ago...

    Luxembourg Usine Escargot (05/2021)

    Well, parts of it... We were able to do the boiler room and this pump house. We have to go back for the turbine hall.

    Luxembourg Usine Escargot (05/2021)

    I really do love places like this... When we made our way on to this still active steelworks, this part of the factory wasn't even our main goal. We kinda stumbled upon it by accident. My by oil and rust driven heart immediately made a small leap of joy. This pump house was built in 1899 to...

    Belgium Green Power (05/2021)

    Haha, tell me about it! In the beginning I got excited about anything and everything! An iffy looking shed was enough to get the juices flowing 😝 After a while though I started developing an outspoken preference for industrial stuff. Not a big fan of private houses, but I do like abandoned...

    Belgium Green Power (05/2021)

    Thanks for the kind words! :) I don't use anything fancy. A Canon 70D EOS with a 10-18mm wide angle lens and sometimes a 50mm for detail shots... I've been contemplating an upgrade to a full frame camera, but that would mean a big investment. And I'm not sure I would feel comfortable with such...

    Belgium Green Power (05/2021)

    Oh damn... I think I was just very lucky. But I did get there really early. I was inside before sunrise. Maybe that made the difference...

    Belgium Green Power (05/2021)

    Thanks! :) They really are gorgeous, aren't they? The other turbines were impressive too, but those Brown Boveris were really something else... You don't often get to see them in this impeccable state either. Apart from one idiot, who apparently felt the need to scratch his name into the blue...

    Belgium Green Power (05/2021)

    Now this was an exciting explore! Only recently put to rest, the electricity in this biomass power plant was stil working. Lights burning everywhere and the constant buzz of generators throughout the entire plant. I was totally expecting to get caught here and I came prepared. I had a spare...

    Belgium Sanatorium du Basil, Belgium, April 2018

    It was a beautiful building and the area is simply stunning. So painful to see what those vandals, taggers and other spray can idiots did to this place. Would it be too mean to secretly hope they all end up with led poisoning?

    France Forge Lunaire (10/2020)

    Precisely. Also, I almost exclusively do urban exploring and mainly industry. Nothing but dust and dirt. I'd feel worried about my equipment all the time...

    France Forge Lunaire (10/2020)

    Nothing spectacular really. An old Canon 70D with a cheap 10-18 lens... Contemplating switching to full frame, but it turns out to be something of an investment... :)

    Forge Lunaire (10/2020)

    This gigantic abandoned steelwork in France had been on my to do list for many years. While doing research I came across several stories that talked about the very active security on the site. I'm always a bit reluctant when there's active security...

    This gigantic abandoned steelwork in France had been on my to do list for many years. While doing research I came across several stories that talked about the very active security on the site. I'm always a bit reluctant when there's active security involved. Especially in France... French...

    Germany Peppermint Powerplant (September 2020)

    Same road trip, different powerplant. A beautiful one at that! Contrary to the previous one (Cyklonkessel Kraftwerk), this one showed virtually no signs of vandalism. Quite weird in a way, because the buildng is quite easily accessible... Perhaps it is because part of the grounds and buildings...
