Great shot, Jim. That lens really can produce the goods.

I love and often struggle to find, really strong foreground interest.

This reminds me of a similar quarry on Dartmoor where the half finished products from the final shift still lie about, abandoned.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Three strong elements to this; foreground, background & sky. Very good!

Masons carved these stones in the place you see them. Millstone production has taken place there since the middle ages,these pulping stones were abandoned due to lack of demand, probably in the early 1900's.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to look and comment, cheers, Jim
