This is part of the disused Dinorwic Slate Quarry in Snowdonia. Here is a bit of info for those interested.
I actually love this place - every time I visit Snowdonia I just have to go and walk here - it is desolate and a mountain vista destroyed by humankind, but somehow to me quite beautiful. In my head I can hear the shouting of the men, the clanging of chains, the cutting of the slate, etc. I guess many see it as an eyesore from days gone by but there is beauty in all the abandoned cut slate; the blue greys, the cry of the birds, the few trees growing on the mountainside hanging on in there for all they are worth, the view, but most of all the silence from human kind
