A boy chases his radio controlled car past the ruin of the Zeppelinhaupttribüne.
The Zeppelinhaupttribüne was a 360m long grandstand designed by Albert Speer, inspired by the Pergamon Altar. It was the centrepiece of the Zepplinfeld, or Zepplin Field, where Hitler addressed more than 200,000 people at the Nazi Party Rallies from 1933 until 1938. The 1939 rally was scheduled for September 2nd but was cancelled as Germany invaded Poland the day before.

Ruairidh and I went exploring at the abandoned IBM plant today. He’s a bit too young to remember this place in it’s heyday so he slept in his pram for a lot of it…

The Glacier Express, “the slowest express train in the world”, sitting in Zermatt station.

The Glacier Express has been running between the ski resorts of St. Moritz and Zermatt since 1930, although it was a summer only service. The train is named after the Rhône Glacier which the original route passed as it entered the Furka Summit Tunnel at 2,160m (7,090 ft). The opening of the 15.4km long Furka Base Tunnel has allowed year round operation since 1982. The train still has to climb to 2,033 m (6,670 ft) over Oberalp Pass.

Me by the ferris wheel in Pripyat.
Pripyat, a city of some 50,000, was evacuated after the explosion at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in April 1986. It’s location within the Exclusion Zone, only a few kilometres from the plant, means it has remained abandoned ever since. Nature has taken back the streets and buildings and animals roam free among the apartment blocks. The ferris wheel and dodgems were to be part of the May Day celebrations. Days after the explosion, despite elevated radiation levels, the May Day parade went ahead in Kiev 110km to the south.
Pripyat, Ukraine.

One night a month or so back there was a lot of auroral activity and everyone was talking about it on Facebook so I decided late on to take a quick, icy jaunt up to Cornalees to see what I could see. I randomly setup the camera on the tripod, pointed it at the sky and opened the shutter and took this to see if there was going to be anything worth shooting. Turned out I had well and truly missed the aurora and a car came down the road with it’s headlights blazing through my exposure.
The car came into the car park and the driver got out and started chatting and we spent the next hour in the freezing cold talking photography and cameras and astronomy before heading our separate ways.
This isn’t a good photo in any way really, but it reminds me of a peaceful night and some good conversation, and sometimes that’s all I need in a photo.
