Stars over the reserve

Old shoots, New edits.  Just trying to get more regular updates.  I’ve been slacking recently.   Enjoy!


Dead Tree

Armed with tripod and iPod,  I went over to the ponds for tonight’s shoot (lack of car seriously limits my options).  It’s too light so I end up having to wait for the sun to set further behind the curvature of the earth.  I see a group of kids armed with flashlights heading undoubtably towards Pyestock, and I shed a metaphorical tear for the vandalism about to happen.  Anyway heres the fruits of tonight:

A Mixed Bag of Pyestock Goodness

Over seven visits, a decade of dereliction,  some of the best times, with the best partners in exploration, crawling through dirt, snow and every tunnel we can find, capturing as much of the beauty and the scale of Pyestock as we can.  The pints in the computer house, the post-explore burgers,  the blood, sweat and the fear, the security scares, the dog chases and the jeep hunts.  The death knell has been rung, but Pyestocks legacy will always live on.

Subterranean Pyestock

So sunday, we spent a fair ammount of time away from the blistering heat, burrowed down in the Subterranean depths of pyestock.  I didn’t take this photos, they are of me, and I am not claiming ownership, I loved how they turned out.  Taken by Adam Thomas, check his work out over at

A brilliant mission today, with security keeping us on our toes, and bumping into some fellow 28dl pals.

Reflections of the night

Appologies for the lack of posting over easter.  I’ve done several shoots just been too drunk or too lazy to actually upload anything onto the blog.  Anyway, tonight I went down to the reserve to shoot tonights beautifully clear sky.  Tonight was also the first time I’ve seen the moon in two weeks, and I’ve been looking out for it.
