Disappearing

Old mine building disappearing into the fog - and eventually into the mountain side. This was a bit too spooky even for me. Tonnes of slate balanced precariously on the hill sides, although I suppose it's been there for decades.
A view of the miners barracks in extras:

I love coming across old buildings like this - great pic. Imagine if the walls could talk!

That fog certainly looks like it controls the photo.

Alison, I love the processing here. Very rustic. Fav.
posted April 9th, 2012  
You'd make a good location scout for a movie - very eerie. Cool composition.
posted April 9th, 2012  
@thebluegnu ha ha what movie did you have in mind? I don't think this location would get past health and safety checks.
posted April 9th, 2012  
Great shot, love the fog, it sets the mood.
posted April 9th, 2012  
Nice and spooky - looks a great place to explore - as long as you mind your footing!

Awesome

this is so incredible! big time FAV
posted April 9th, 2012  
fav for sure. This is fabulous and love the way you processed it. I particularly like the mist, the shapes of all the stone, the color
posted April 9th, 2012  
Cool shot, would make a great horror movie set :)
posted April 9th, 2012  
@anndee @jgpittenger Thanks so much for the favs. The processing was done in befunky if you're interested. You can use the basic version for free. Although this was a pretty bleak scene to start with!

This was a great find, what a fab subject!
posted April 9th, 2012  
Great shot, looks very familiar to me, where is it? Fav'd
posted April 9th, 2012  
@reciprocity Thanks! Its at the slate mines in Llanberis, Wales.
posted April 9th, 2012  
Ahhh! That might be why it's familiar then. Nice atmosphere when its misty round them there hills.
posted April 9th, 2012  
This does look like something from another era. Wonderful tonalities and atmosphere.

posted April 9th, 2012  
Okay... now I'm worried about you. Just where do you live that you have so many roof-less buildings nearby? (Just kidding... I really love all the ruins)
posted April 9th, 2012  
@worthyglo I definitely don't live here. I'd never be able to sleep!

Superb processing...love it.
posted April 9th, 2012  
Very eerie and you've gone a bit different on the processing - nice!
posted April 9th, 2012  
You do a great job with these unusual locations. I like how clearly you capture textures and the processing lends the image the perfect atmosphere.

posted April 9th, 2012  
Fabulous shot - great processing too. I'm sorry my patch of the world didn't perform for you weather-wise. The journey back southwards today was pretty grim. Hope you weren't camping!
posted April 9th, 2012  
@lluniau I don't mind a bit of moody weather. And luckily I've got a camper van. Best thing I ever bought :-)
posted April 9th, 2012  
@fueast Ooooh, have you?! I'd loooove one of those! But really, you should have seen Snowdonia last Easter - it was a scorcher. We cycled up from Cardiff on NCR8 (national cycle route) - 250miles - had a tan and got sunstroke in Builth Wells!
posted April 9th, 2012  
A beauty!
posted April 9th, 2012

posted April 9th, 2012  
@lluniau Can't remember if I went away last Easter - went to Scotland the week before I think and nearly got snowed in!
posted April 9th, 2012

@sparkle Yep it's remote. Up the mine track you're not supposed to go up. Foggy, windy, weird creaking noises and several tonnes of slate just hanging. Creepy!
