Default Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex

Went this weekend to a coal mine and wanted to share some of the sights.

It was misty, not the best weather but I think it added to these pictures.

Quote:
The Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex (German Zeche Zollverein) is a large former industrial site in the city of Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It has been inscribed into the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since December 14, 2001 and is one of the anchor points of the European Route of Industrial Heritage.

I agree. I also like the composition of#4 very much. My eyes follow all the ramps, working up toward the top of the frame, and when my eyes get to the top of the frame, I am left wondering why those people are all standing on the roof.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting this. My family came from Germany and worked in the coal mining industry. Although, many years before this plant was built and in a little more southern area. But, it was nice to read about the history of it.

I also liked the views of the buildings. Masterfully done.

Very interesting history, and very well-photographed. Especially enjoyed the balance of the last one...

Thanks mtnman,

those people at the top was the only place where you had a complete view of the site, just 50m of stairs and you where there.

Thanks Patty, the thing I really like about this site, is the way they've kept it in a great state. We had also a lot of coal mines but nobody thought about keeping them.
