Thanks for those who took time to either vote or comment on yesterdays panorama.
Tonight I fully expect this image to bomb - I just don't think its the usual epz fodder (More the reason to post it then! )
This was taken at Bro Peris (I think) slate mine in the good company of Pete (Goggz). At heart of Bro Peris is a quarry pit of gigantic proportions. This image was taken using a 105mm telephoto lens from one edge of the pit looking across to the opposite wall. What appear as diagonal lines are actually shelves in the quarry face - and hunkered on them are blast huts - the huts used by the quarry workers to take shelter during the blasting of the quarry face. How many can you spot?
When I think of how terrifying it must have been to sit in one of these huts as the slate fell all around I remember just how fortunate we are today.
