Great shot. Atmosphere and an air of mystery.

Excellent shot...very much my kind of thing. Had a couple of great evenings poking about an abandoned slate quarry once near Nantlle. This is particularly well executed.
Best wishes,

A fantastic moody and dramatic scene, timbo. A very unique view/ aspect, too. Nice one.

Personally, I would love to visit this area.

Artistic picture very well composed and presented. I like the way the slabs of slate frame the ruined building.
