The edge of darkness

    Newer Older

    I have lived less than 30 minute walk from here for nearly 20 years and only been three times, this was the first time with my camera. I had to drag my sister (seen at the far end of this shot) with me as the kiln is pretty creepy on your own. It's hard to describe the kiln, I guess it's like a large man-made cave and above ground?

    This shot was taken on a 30 second exposure, f/22 in the West chamber facing North.

    Taken at Hoffman Kiln, Langcliffe, Near Settle, North Yorkshire, England.

      haha that is awesome, but less of a coincidence than you might think... Jay said I should check it out last week on Twitter, it's really close to my parents back in Settle!
