    Smile Quarry near Llanberis


    Visited this on me, Kaputnik and The_revolutions visit to wales. We stumbled upon this place looking for an old ammo storage place of some kind. It was an amazing place but we were lost for a good while looking for what we had set out for, on some poor directions.


    Not exactly sure of its history but i'm sure we will find out. On with the photos.

    (Computers being crappy, trying to upload the others! keep checking!)

    I wish you would spill the beans on how you get your pics to look like that! They look soo cool. It gives the image a whole new look. :)

    Try pissing around with Photoshop CS3 for a bit. It works for her :)

    A bit like covering your lens in a piece of cling film that's been wrapped around a piece of rotting meat for 2 weeks. Not sure if that's a good or a bad thing like.

    Ah rite. :) I thought it was something to do with putting a sticky quality street wrapper over the lens!

    My only picture from this place; a hidden lake. There are plenty of fenced off deep old quarries here. This one must of been over 100ft deep. Had to slide down a slope of lose slate to find a ledge to take a picture from before realising it would be a right scramble to get back up!



    From what little I've been able to find out I think this lake was where unused bombs were dumped after WW2 before being removed in the 1960's & 1970's. The fence surrounding it had an old "Danger High Explosive" sign on it; which would support this.

    Not a photography expert, by any means, but you're using textures. Yes?

    The_Revolution, love your photo of the lake. Looking forward to the rest ;).
