Ale and Cakes

By dflory  
You'll have to forgive my indulgence of posting another 'Tin Mine' image. I seem to have an obsession with these pumphouses, I think it must be the texture of the stone, drama of the cornish skies, the lush greenery from the incessant rain, sometimes scrubland heather to boot..... Must have had a few too many Cornish Ales today
These situated in the Reduth - Truro - Newquay triangle, these were from the Unity Wood Mine, sometimes called (I was told) Ale and Cakes.

they are very interesting. And must be very old.

There's nothing wrong with being obsessed with these remnants of the mining past. I have long been fascinated by them. On my only adult trip to St. Ives in 2004 I saw plenty from the train and they were impressive.

I like this a lot, but have you thought of cropping this to a square format to concentrate on the buildings alone and converting to B&W? I have a sneaking suspicion a higher contrast would work well.

Thanks Tim. You are quite right about the mono crop so I have uploaded a version. Dave

I wish I could give a second vote for that.

Typical Cornwall! A lovely capture, David, does work well cropped and converted to mono, but going for colour as my fave 😃👍
Keep supping those Cornish ales!! 🍺🍺

Great images
Both images work well but I slightly prefer the colour. Great subject and lovely area.
