Rusting away

I’m just back from the Lake District where I have visited Coniston.

A hundred years ago the area was a hub of activity with many copper mines and slate quarries.

Little now remains except for a few pieces of rusting metalwork, but these make for interesting photographs.

Here are a couple of my images.

I thought the partial mono effect added some atmosphere.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
