Beamish in December 1

By woolybill1
Looking over the pit village soon after the museum's opening time.
The prominent building dead centre (with the stepped roof) is the school, with the pithead building in the distance. Beyond the brick gateposts is the coal yard; the pit raa (row of miners' cottages) is out of picture to the left but the kitchen gardens can just be seen.

Thanks to all everyone who dropped by yesterday, and to JuBarney who gave the Christmas duck her coveted Award.

I love the calm and peaceful look of this lovely village with smoke coming from the chimneys - an idyllic picture as i see it

Good to see some coal/wood fires burning, Bill. A smashing shot to view LARGE!

Looks like Santa got stuck up that chimney.

All the very best Bill.

The side lighting, low light levels and all that smoke add up to making a most atmospheric winter image, and captured from a well considered vantage point.
I like this shot a lot.

Lots to look at here, Bill. They certainly like their fossil fuels though, don't they? ( Said he, with his 2.2 ltr turbo diesel... Blush )

Reminds me of the village I grew up in - the smoking chimneys of the '40s - quite an atmospheric shot.

Typical scene of many a village in Winter. No smoke without (coal?) fire. Well recorded image. Have a good New Year.
