Something I found on the photographs from last time was that they suffered from the lack of dynamic range of the sensor in my Nikon D70. I did bracket many of the images but not all, and consequently, some of the images were technically lacking, but I like to think I captured the spirit of the place. Since moving to a full frame camera in 2009 I’ve had fewer problems with dynamic range, and now that I’m using a Nikon D810, the problems are even less, especially at lower ISO’s, and I slightly regret not revisiting earlier when the site was more intact.
Taken from a broadly similar viewpoint as last time, you can see how much has changed on this picture.
Scrap. Surprised the traveling community haven’t relocated this.
A small moat is forming round the head frame.
Taken from a broadly similar viewpoint as this from last time, albeit much later in the day, on the way home.
There’s some nice old photos of the mine on aditnow.co.uk here.
