Tin Mine Storms

By richardwheel  
Another from a magical place in Cornwall, the Botallack Tin Mines didn't disappoint when we went to shoot them and I was mesmerised by the power of the waves crashing onto the cliffs.

My favourite of the holiday...and probably that I've taken for a long time.

Cheers for looking...

What a lovely pair of Botallacks you have mate Wink

Just landed home, so it's nice to see them on a calibrated screen ... they don't disappoint that's for sure. Smile [Just downloading all mine ... gonna be a while on this 'steam powered' system Sad].

Another stunning shot Richard. Must put this place on my list of places to visit. It certainly does capture the power of the waves, and great lighting too.

Glad you like the look of my Botallacks mate..... Tongue

Cheers for the thumbs up - I do appreciate it Smile Hope you've managed to get some more crackers in the bag en-route? You're going to have a busy weekend processing by the sound of things!

Many thanks everyone....

Beautiful light and you've really captured the power of the Atlantic swell. This was what I was dreaming of last week but alas it wasn't to be Sad Still seeing images like this makes me want to get back down there as soon as possible Smile

Fantastic light. Been quite busy over the last few weeks and am just catching up. Looks like I've missed some beauties!
