    Blue Dinas Metal Mine
    February 2016


    History is scarce on this mine, so I am gonna leave it out.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The mine was sealed in 2010 by the landowner, but we contacted the landowner and got permission for a visit to the mine, although he said he doesn't usually allow people to go in, as it requires kinda breaking & entering lol.

    Anyway we was allowed in. (Pictures are taken, inside the mine first, working our way back out.)

    If it wasn't for the first picture, I'd have called it Monochrome Mine :thumb

    I like the look of this. It's a shame your photos lack colour though. I think the black and white thing works for buildings, but maybe not mines; where we want to see the colours and things that make the mine unique.

    WildBoyz, the reason there is no colour is because, there was bad lighting, so I made them black and white and upped the contrast slightly.

    Thanks,

    Fair enough, I can see why you did that. Just a friendly observation. Each to our own :thumb

    Decent photos mate, I know that the landowner was looking to sell the mineral rights to the upper mine and control access but I seem to remember just walking into this lower one, no gates or anything, is it the mine with the entrance opposite the bridge?

    The Kwan, I know it's a late-ass reply but still, it's the one on the right of the footpath, from where this mine is it's quite a while before you get to the Upper & Lower Silica Mine, which yes, you can just walk into. This one has fencing on it, which with permission we were allowed to dislodge, as long as we put it back to how it was.

    Regards,
