Regardless Of The Wet Weather!

Out walking today with a mate, Gary, we were mainly looking around a local open-cast coal mine as part of a long term project (to be blogged at a later date). For now i want to share  the odd photo of the area that i feel are quite interesting. I’m the sort of person that looks at the wider view, but today we both found some more detailed scenes to photograph. The weather was wet and a little misty, but around the site there is woodland to walk through that offers interesting photo opportunities. It’s also interesting to focus on the different land that has been made due to the mining. There are new hills with grasses growing, but otherwise quite sterile. So today, rather than show the mining, i’ll share some of these other shots.

Wet moss and shrubbery under the canopy of trees.

Interesting grasses on the otherwise sterile mounds leftover from the recent open-cast mining. These have been left by earth from the next area to be mined being used to fill the hole left by the mining here.

In the background is the fence marking the boundary of the open-cast site. The grassy behind is to hide the mining from the pathway, and to keep the noise level of the machinery down.



About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
