Cornish Mining History

by shaun2k

This shot was taken on my pentax compact, the large metal lump you see is a copper tumbler used whilst this mine was open in the early part of the century at Devon great consoles, its now used as a downhill mountainbiking venue, but its a lovely place to snap away in.

thankyou, the sky had some work, and so i lost detail in the branches, but i love the shot, and for a little compact you can't complain, good little camera really.

I like shooting at devon great consoles, as it's a very different landscape to most other places in cornwall, the copper slip is great for a baron prehistoric look. another similar place is roche near newquay, which has the light blue lime pools and slag hills dotted around the area.

Excellent subject and wonderful BW photo. It looks like a gigantic instrument of torture but I presume its part of a stone crusher, is it?
