Took this shot Wednesday. A small statue of ours, depicting a Miner from the Rhondda Valley in South Wales. It is made from coal out of the mines that were part of The Rhondda Coalfield. The Coalfield took in most of Glamorgan and the entirety of the Rhondda Valleys, Rhondda Fawr (large) and Rhondda Fach (Bach small) which are on the River Rhondda. Sadly the Coalfield is no longer in existence, although the Rhondda National Heritage park is based on the site of the Lewis Merthyr Colliery which is a 'working' colliery. You can actually go down a shaft, also see a typical street of a mining village!! Well worth a visit Taken indoors using dark card for b/g ,natural light through roller blinds , Cropped and framed using picnik.
