Abandoned mines

Lately I've become rather interested in photographing old abandoned environments such as industrial sites and military bunkers. I also enjoy a bit of caving now and then, but there are no spectacular caves with a day trip distance of Stockholm so I don't go caving a lot. I have however recently discovered that there are quite a lot of old abandoned mines within day trip distance from home, and that old mines are the perfect blend between abandoned industrial sites and caves. As I enjoy taking photos in dark places my camera equipment usually comes along so there will be quite a few galleries coming up here in the near future.
