Ghost of the Cold War

Here’s my latest offering - some of you might have seen the photo I put up in the Photo of the Day section a few days ago, and here’s the video to go with it!

Just waiting for a knock at the door now…



Where is that?

I could tell you but then I’d have to shred you…


I can tell you, and you won’t be shredded, it was R A F Molesworth, you can read all about it on wiki!


When in the RAF Police, we did some training there. Those bunkers are much bigger than our equivalent, and that tower… Well let’s say when we stormed it, we needed to get out breath back at the top of the steps before we did anything…


Ah ha Snowdrop! :wink:

The place and shots are brilliant.

As a rule, I dislike “teal and orange” colour grading, but this is one place that could do with it and maybe a bit of added film grain to make it look extra gritty.

Sorry @PingSpike, but if we told you we’d have to…slab you (more RAF Slang!)


Looks a great place for our type of work:)

However i though your shots were to repetitive, you were just flying over one way then another , doesn’t really keep you hooked.

There was one shot where you lowered the drone.

You could have “climbed” the tower for a call reveall

Just my thoughts by the way, dont take it to heart, just offering constructive comments (i hope)


Good call on the tower. I’m getting more confident with not necessarily seeing the drone (for very short periods of time of course!) But yes, a cool rising reveal shot would be a good idea.

Might have to do a second visit in due course…
