Nocturnal Edge

This isn’t actually nocturnal, it was taken in a cave, part of which had been used as an air raid shelter in the last war…..but I thought it had something of the night about it, to say nothing of edges

and Paula is looking at things nocturnal here.


  1. Looks like a forbidding place to sit out the bombing, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. this is a great shot –

  3. Rather an eerie atmosphere down there I should think nowadays Sue … imagine the sounds of clattering footfall on those steps as people rushed to a safe place …

  4. Scarry, actually, particularly if you have a touch of claustrophobia. I immediately thought it puts one ‘on edge’. Amazing what people did to survive bombing. Great take on edge.

  5. So dramatic, Sue. It would make a great book cover for a very dark tale.

  6. Definitely – Nosferatu would feel at home here.

  7. This is a creepy one. 😦

  8. Saw a “Foyle’s War” that showed people in one of tWW II. I remember bomb shelters and drills from grade school in the US.


  9. oh the stories these stairs tell!!

  10. I agree with Tish about the book cover. This looks like a very eerie place, even in the daytime I can’t imagine myself there at night. 😯

  11. That door scares me more than anything else in this photograph.

  12. I think that it fits perfectly. The mood is very nocturnal, and I like the perspective. Thank you, Sue.

    What an impressive picture! There must be so many stories to hear if those stairs could talk .. Great take on the challenge Sue!

  15. Grainy and great atmosphere. I love the rail shadow down the left side.

  16. Pingback: Edge: High (1) | What's (in) the picture?

  17. It does have a nocturnal feeling to it—and something very mysterious. What’s hiding behind that door? Love the way the photo triggers the imagination, even the subject actually was very tangible.

  18. It certainly gives me the shivers!

  19. Well, now I have the shivers too! Great capture, Sue.
