My brother in law, Spen, told me a about an old railway tunnel in Bourne, Lincolnshire.
It is called Borne Park Tunnel.
There was no way that I could be told about something and not go looking for it.
It didn't take long to find and it wasn't disappointing, lots of cool images to take.
From what I read the tunnel was constructed and completed around 1887-1888 due to a local land owner not wanting a train line ruining the view from his mansion. The tunnel was closed in 1947.
During World War 2 the line was closed to passengers in 1940 and was taken over by the military. It was home to a huge Railway gun called the Boche Buster which could fire shells of 1.4 tons over a range of 12 miles.
The good ol' internet supplied all of the above, personally I found the news of the big gun a cool surprise.
The lens of choice for this day was my Sigma 70-200 F2.8, im still loving it.
I wanted to capture different details of the site and the lens helped to pick out small details and patterns from the surroundings.
|Awesome diffused light shining through the trees onto these steep steps carved into the bank|
|This lone tree caught my eye as I was leaving the site, I framed the tree and the field through branches of the shrubbery I was standing behind.|
Thanks for looking.
