This quarry is close to were I grew up. I remember going there with my dad when they were still in operation. There were a few neat outbuildings that have since been torn down but at least the left a few cool things inside the mine.

Interesting! I wonder how many excavators and such are left in the quarries ...

They are great shots but I gotta tell you......you got balls the size of basketballs going into an abandoned mine where the ceiling's already caving in.

That's a quick way to become dead.

Actually I've been in much more dangerous situations. A mine collapse was the farthest thing from my mind.

The first three shots are my favourites. I love your use of lighting in all of them.


My website has my most recent work - macro photography (external link), live music photography (external link) and am working on a book focusing on Brisbane live music (external link) as my way of giving back.
I also have some photography tips (external link) for those with new cameras.

Awesome shots, makes me want to go and take a look around the quarry down the road from my house, it was closed a few years back due to cave ins.

But I digress, nice shots!!
