Never a truer point said Rod. Really like the processing of the plaque. This must be the main seam, on the side seams they could be working on their sides because of the height restrictions.

A true sign of the times and a statement so very poignant at these increased times of hardship for today's youngsters. "I'm personally in very much favour for National DService or some for of long term conscription, it would certainly solve a many of the countries issues which Politician so quickly dismiss and sweep them under the carpet which has over the years grown to have a monumental lump in the middle.

Yer so right Nathan the carpet looks like Quasi Modo . Iam not sure the answer is conscription though , iam basically anti anything military but that's just my opinion but we certainly need to improve the outlook for todays generation. We could bring back heavy industry instead of buying cheap **** fae Asia that would be a start ! In an independent Scotland all will be rosy lol (and the fitba team will win some games lol). Take care my friends south of the border GrinGrinGrinGrin

Strong image - you were lucky to have some decent light and shadow to show up the textures and detail. This needs the harsh feel.
I'd like to skew the top right corner up a degree. But the mine itself probably didn't have a single true right angle in it...
We have the same debate locally, our town is basically four pit villages that spread and merged. It's part of our history, we don't forget it. But there are still a lot of families that are mourning the men killed in various disasters,...

Yeah Moira spot on , it is a part of our history but it could have been so more , most of these pits could have gone on producing coal and employing men. The top right corner was an issue with me but as you said that was the conditions so I thought it quite appropriate to leave it squint Smile Thanks again for your helpful/insightful comments Smile

Excellent capture, and carper is right - very tricky thing to get right. The tonal range and detail are great, and yes, the texture is virtually palpable.
