Big Pit

30/30 for my photo-a-day in November challenge

I've visited the Big Pit several times since it opened. It's a disused coal mine, now open to the public. You can go underground and you have to wear a helmet and lamp and you get to go down in the cage.

There have been a few changes since our last visit with some interesting additions. Definitely well worth a visit -- and it's free!

Some were good, some were desperation shots but it's got me back into the habit of taking more than just one photo a week and, when I had time, a chance to experiment with some shots I wouldn't have taken if I hadn't committed to taking a daily photo.

There will be more photos, but this week will be rather hectic because our replacement combi-boiler is being installed, so there certainly won't be a photo every day.
