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.
