  1. Fantastic work! - I've got to go see this place soon
  2. Great photos & very well taken - thanks for sharing
  3. I'm just back from a very enjoyable holiday in the hills above Lucca in Tuscany, Italy. The villa we were staying in had a fascinating surprise in store for us. The villa came with it's own abandoned chapel. It was quite small and the rafters and the vestibule were inhabited by a colony of bats. Much of the paraphernalia of the church had just been left to decay, collect dust and bat droppings. Very low light and having no tripod with me meant I had to resort to high ISO and wide apertures for most of the time. Anyways - hope you like this little insight into the past of a small church in rural Tuscany...
  4. Haha - he made a joke about charging us to let us out. He was very nice and when we explained we were a camera club he said "I knew you were otherwise I'd have thrown you out". Ayr Photographic Society actually organised an official visit there last Thursday - so it can be done legit if you ask. Takes a lot of the fun out of it though!
  5. So, after discovering a thread I convinced my camera club that Loudon would be worth a wee visit. We set off this evening to explore and take some photos. Remarkably easy to get in, despite the big gate - it was just a matter of walking around the outside of the gate and then up to driveway to the castle. That's it really - you have complete access to the site. To be honest it appears to be far from abandoned - in fact it is very well looked after. The grass is mown and everything appears to be largely undamaged. Many of the rides have been taken down and removed but there was still a fair bit to see. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
  6. Understood! Going to visit again soon - without the girls
  7. Thanks for the warm welcome Skeleton Key :-) I don't usually do much model shooting on location - this was a bit of a one off. I'll take your advice and ensure that future posts only feature the location. Cheers, Clive
  8. These photos were taken at the derelict Dunaskin brick works near Dalmellington, East Ayrshire, Scotland It used to be the base for a heritage centre until funding was withdrawn in 2005. The Ayrshire railway preservation group use the site which means access is good and there are some interesting locos, carriages etc to see.
