Square Spinney Railway Tunnel
Square Spinney Railway Tunnel, taken 4 years ago
Square Spinney railway tunnel is a disused ex LNER tunnel five miles out of Leicester. The tunnel is often used by photographers to practice long exposure techniques during the day time. This fire spin used wire wool in a whisk; it's heated before being spun very fast. As the air rushes through the wire wool sparks giving this effect over 30 seconds. I was also testing out my newly acquired headlamp which is 1200 lumens. I'm heading down Carrock Wolfram mine next week which is also pitch black.
