    Arrow CWM Coke Works, Wales.


    Hi all,

    Did a trip to Wales to have a look around CWM Coke a couple of weeks ago.
    Its one of the best industrial sites I have seen, filthy, enormous, dangerous and beautiful in its own way.
    The weather was less than ideal, sodding it down all day long and me and Paulo ended up soaked after a full day of climbing around the gantries and all of the walkways.My camera also suffered a couple of showers but it just added to the epic darkness of CWM.
    Thanks to Immortal Owl for the advice:thumb, now on with the pics.

    Superb pics as always, payno. The gloominess of the day really adds to the atmosphere, doesn't it. Love the B&W ones, especially. :)
