    Man. One of my life goals is to make it to Pripyat / Chernobyl. Did you have difficulty gaining access to them?

    Beautiful picture!

    @turbolemming: Thank you! It took some planning, but nowadays, it's not that difficult to enter the zone anymore. You still need a permit and a guide of course.

    After posting this I am about to embark of beginning my own journey there, but it is a while away yet. I havent got through all the sets in this yet, but I will by end of morning. Thanks for bringing this to me.

    This shot is awesome, your use of HDR is very good, and I am touched by these images.

    If you are interested, I come across your pages when I was emailed the following link which is titled The World's Ten Creepies Abandoned Cities.
