hi,
been away on a survey for about 2 months and brought back a few images from the that area; here is a set of images from a salt mine, no longer operational but kitted out hopefully as a tourist attraction.
all shots taken handheld at ISO 1600-4000, as I left my tripod back home.
Location - city of Turda in Transylvania

#1 entrance stairs, first contact with the salt


#2 salty textures on the roof


#3 access gallery


#4 same gallery, old bricks


#5 main chamber( rectangular) that was made accessible to visitors


#6 wooden balcony, running under the roof of the main chamber


#7 second chamber, bell shaped and partially flooded


#8 lights in the second chamber, a bit kitschy


#9 boat rides


#10 underground bridge


#11 taking a break


#12 lights


#13 very old winch system, it was operated by horses to bring up loaded trolleys from lower levels in the mine


#14 rope used in the winch


#15 a last look back, before leaving the mine

I'll echo that sentiment. Love the little rowboats.

Beautiful, lots of good shots but #12 is a bit special.

Great series, number 2 with the textures is my favorite, but i think you have really done the setting justice. Not something you often see driving around :).

The textures, colours and shapes in shots 2-4 are wonderful and fascinating and yes #12 is great too... And I like the rope, even if it is not as unique as some of the other shots. Of course the best thing is all the rest, telling the whole story. I think the boats are a bit too distorted but I am still very glad they are there as it is a fantastic scene.

Excellent post!

What an incredible place!
The photographs of the lighting aren't kitsch at all.

Regarding the first 2 pictures of the way in - does it look that colour to the eye, or is that the result of post processing or camera settings?

the colours in the first 2 are modified, white balance moved towards cooler colours and a little tint in post processing; in #3 and #4 the overhead lights did have different output, I don't know why;
the rest are pretty much as the camera saw them.

Your color photos really caught my eye. Right away they reminded me of early 50's & 60's space, science fiction movies, especially "Forbidden Planet".
Immediately transported me off planet Earth, very refreshing. I've never been in salt mines. Great photos, thanks for the trip
