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!

Big Pit

The weather was very cold and bleak last Saturday, but it was good to spend time with our daughter, granddaughter and son-in-law and I think everyone enjoyed it, despite the cold.

So that's 30 out of 30 photos taken and posted. 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.
