nikon D70 24-70 sigma lens


on a recent day out, with my friend when he was driving we passed this old colliery, so i grabbed my camera whilst on the move & took this shot. i was surprised at the colour of the sky, then i realized he had tinted windows :-):-)so i had a built in polarizing filter.

I am not familiar with the term colliery but it looks like a mine hoist for hauling ore and people up and down from mine shafts below.

The picture is a little dark. You might want to play with contrast and boost the gamma a bit. Nice find.

If you go to 'The Big Pit', a tourist attraction in Blaenavon, Gwent, you can be kitted out with helmet & lamp and lowered hundreds of feet using pithead gear just like that, and walk round the mine in the fascinating company of people who used to work there.

In South Wales there is one remaining working deep coal mine - Tower Colliery, Hirwaun - which has often teetered on the brink of financial collapse, but is OK at the moment, I think.

colliery is the term for a coal mine, specifically.
