Something is stirring in the dark woods...
Another from my mystery location. Can anyone identify the place yet? All I can say about yesterday's attempts is that nobody got close. Not even Danny and Chris with their suggestion of our brand new library...
This really is a very popular location...
Thanks for looking,
Moira
Edit: Mystery location now identified, so I've added the Map location.

Tremendous abstraction with this high contrast rendition of the ironmongery, I have no idea of where this might debut those that stay in your neck of the woods might get a better blue from this one Moira.

High contrast, strong shapes from a very good angle. Great abstract (ish) composition.

Beamish??

It's a beautifully graphic image, but very naughtily you haven't really given us any clear clues at all. Smile

As long as the epzers aren't playing a game Christopher loves to play in charades, and that is that the guessers are primed NOT to guess it properly. The victim gets more and more excited when the most obvious clues are given and STILL the guessers don't get it!! SmileSmile Great fun!

It looks like part of the mechanism from a 1950s Heidleberg printing press Moira,
so you must have brought this back from a visit to your German friends !!
And regarding your question about a society for shadows,the obvious one would be the SAS,
but there are enough shadowy characters in that already !!

I really like this image, Moira. The start B&W contrasts, the gritty detail, the composition are all wonderful.
However, if you are nowhere near the Pacific Ocean, I'm afraid I haven't a clue as to your location.

I've only been around for very brief visits today. Dave and Ann have correctly identified Beamish - I'm sorry I overlooked Dave's comment earlier.
All three uploads so far have been from within a few steps of the engine shed, near to the Pit Village.
More to come...

I love a mystery......but now it's been solved, Great! I would never have guessed.

I am beginning to wonder if it something to do with water, maybe a pump or something.
It isn't Cragside House is it? Please say no, I still don't want to garden for a week.Grin
I love the angle of shot here by the way.

Andy

P.S. I didn't see it had been solved before I guessed, doh! Still Dave and Anne congratulations and enjoy your week sorting Moira's garden.Wink

I love this pic. No wonder I didn't get the location the North East to me starts at Ringwood, the North West starts at Blandford. Much past these two and you might fall off the edge of the world. Wink
