Passage and Crane

By dersk  
One from my collection of record photographs of the Bathstone quarries near Bath. This shows a passage with tracks,tools and in the backgound a crane used to stack the blocks of stone. As it is totally dark underground all lighting is by painting with flash and the odd candle to light the way if the floor is rough.
For this photo, 60 second exposure at f3.5, camera refocused after first set of flashes, total flashes about 25.
flashguns used Regula CT40 brilliant flashgun and Metz 60CT-1 both running on large battery packs for quick recharge. Hope you like it.

Very interesting Derek, the detail is good and the exposure so perfect for this environment. Impressive detailed work in a specialised field.

Thanks for sharing this unique photo. Your flash painting and refocusing technique is interesting.
