Permanite, Matlock, September 2017 - warning, HDR!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here! 

This was my first Urbex shoot and I got disturbed by a gang of lads - being on my own, I didn't want to hang about, so didn't get all the content that was available.

I know HDR appears ghastly to some (these weren't very well received on 28days), but it's what I set out to do on this shoot, so I'm sticking to my guns. If folk don't like them, I'll do something different next time.

I live around a mile away from here and this place used to produce bitumen products, was owned by Tarmac I believe and closed down sometime in the last decade. There isn't much in the way of old equipment lying around and there's been a lot of vandalism. I've noticed a few on here have visited before. CC welcome.

I was here with fraggs and Snapt a few months back and personally I didn't like it however they both loved it. 

Your pics being hdr'd are not everyones cup of tea but IMHO tough shit-if you like em who cares??? 

For the record I think your pics make this place look a hundred times better than it does. I rather like them and think you have done an excellent job of the place. 

Top work and a top first report.

We at the place the other side of the river first in matlock bath so it wasn't that we just went for that. 

Have you been there? 

The old Viaton works? I think I've seen a report on here. No, this one was my very first explore, but keen to do a few more. Got a few mates who are into photography, so might get a group together.

Only just had my registration to the site confirmed, so I'll hopefully get round to commenting on other peoples reports soon
