Description

Industrial Past

One of the many old engine houses dotted around the area known as the "Great Flat Lode" so called as the seams of ore were nearly horizontal instead of the usual vertical. I wanted a series of sepia shots of the mines here known as South Wheal Francis to add some feeling of the past but an aeroplane vapour trail did not look right until I moved my position, and even then I had to move a time or two while I got myself set as the trail was slowly drifting across the sky.

Very nicely done Vince, vapour trails and power lines always seem to sneak in to try and spoil a shot.
