Aye, aye, I recognise this.

Nice one Rob, and an angle I couldn't do 'cos of the security guards.

Thanks for the votes everyone Smile

Ian, I was wearing all black and moving very slowly, so there was less chance of being detected by CCTV or the security guaurds.

Thanks Greg, not too sure when I will be posting again, there's been a few changes in my life and more to come yet.

I may be off ePz for quite a while in the near future due to these changes. But they are all good changes, and hopefully will be back posting with more regularity as a result Smile

13 Jun 2006 4:49PM
Sorry I missed this one as well. Welcome back...
By the way, you did a wonderful job with this image.
The colours, frame and the texture make this picture extremely attractive.
Well done...

Garibaldi is my old school too. It's one of the best schools in Nottinghamshire.

Clipstone pit wont be there for too much longer I dont think, so I though I'd better capture it the best way I could, with some nice backlighting.

Thanks for the comment btw Smile

A memory from my youth, I was brought up in a mining area and worked down the pit in Rossington before seeing the light and joining the RAF. Not many of these left standing now, this image shows the sadness of the decline of the industry.
