Traces of the Past: Cornwall’s mining heritage

As I’m not feeling 100% today, a quick post to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. The ruins of a tin mine illustrating Cornwall’s mining heritage, quite solid Traces of the Past. I posted a monochrome version of this image the other day – I wonder which one you prefer?

Crowns mine, Botallack, Cornwall

  1. A nice shock. Suitably antique in content and fading colours.

  2. Hope you’re not suffering too much. I know it’s not always easy.

    Colour or monochrome? Sepia or saturated tones? Depends on the story you want to tell, I suppose, more than the viewer. But giving us a choice means we have to work harder, doesn’t it! And my own fall-back position is just that — fall back!

    I think the one in B&W is more mysterious, but both are really nice 😉

  4. Last time I appreciated the B&W version for the word ” heritage” , but now I’m in doubt : this one looks so delicate and nostalgic , too…
    Beautiful anyway……!

  5. It reminds me of the mines on the series Poldark.

  6. Hmmm, I don’t which I prefer, but I do like this colored one. Hope you feel better soon!

  7. The monochrome had a little more atmosphere for me.
    I hope you feel better soon, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. I would love to visit this place. The monochrome in this case works better. more depth.

  9. Hope you’re feeling a bit better soon Sue! I like elements in both the mono and colour. Love the feeling of nostalgia and industry that mono gives but I also love the deep blue of the sea! Really want to visit some of the old mining sites sometime.

  10. That’s beautiful. Really beautiful.

  11. You’re doing rather well for a poorly person. 🙂 🙂

  13. Iconic view! I love the bluish tones. They suit Cornwall, but let me see the monochrome one and I’ll get back to you.

  14. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. Sending hugs. Xo

  15. I have to say, in this case I prefer the monochrome.

  17. Loved seeing the Cornwall mining relics when travelling there and your photo has brought back many lovely memories. Hope you feel better soon.

  18. Black and white for me – not easy to pick, mind you.
    Have a restful day Sue

  19. Feel better soon, Sue.

  20. The faded colors make it particularly nostalgic.

  21. The monochrome wins for me!
