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.
