    Hodge Close Quarry, Coniston

    This disused slate quarry is now a mecca for rock climbers seeking E-graded sports routes. We had taken climbing kit with us, but alas slate is a slippery as ice when even slightly wet, and in this case, water was streaming down these the bolted climbing routes.

    I did some research on this quarry when I got home and found [this] most amazing autumn panoramic shot of this quarry by Gary Waidson, which quite frankly made me want to give up photography, or perhaps try a lot harder!

    I certainly don’t think you should give up photography. There’s lots of good pictures on your site.

    It’s just about being in the right place at the right time and knowing what to do with the opportunity.
