A short drive from where I live are the ruins of an old coal mine from the 1850s which never really came into production.
Not much is left there as evidence of the mine but some of the old steam powered equipment and what not on the surface can still be found in the forest which has grown up around the site.
The mine managers house is long gone but it's two chimneys still stand tall and straight where the stone mason put them so many years ago. Truely a testiment to the mason's abilities.
Each picture is actually a combination of 3 pictures taken at different exposures and processed with Photoshop CS4s HDR feature. All pictures were taken with the Sigma ultrawide at 10mm on a tripod believe it or not... LOL
