Richard, I love not only the beauty of your captures but your consistent dedication to telling the stories of forgotten moments, of Historical Importance, of Beauty. Thank you for the glimpse!

Richard Brookes replied:

Many thanks Laurel that's really appreciated. I think a few years back I realised that I didn't really understand what I was looking at. I've since found that if you research these historical sites before you visit you don't miss so many things and have some idea what to look for. It also brings them to life a little I think. Also, hopefully pays tribute to all those, including young children, who worked and sometimes died, in what we now would consider difficult, if not appalling conditions. Hopefully some of the images of less well visited and less accessible locations will provide a contemporary photographic record of such monuments especially of those in imminent danger of collapse.

Fascinating story behind this interesting looking structure. In addition to that, I must mention the stunning and endless vistas -- it looks as if you can see forever! I love everything about this from the beautiful rocks in the foreground to the color of the sky. Well done, Richard! L/F

Richard Brookes replied:

Thank you for your kind comments Jane. I'm so pleased you like it. I love these places. They are always fascinating and poignant. Often they are in quite remote and geologically interesting (& steep!) locations. Sadly, many have been neglected and lost to the rigours of vegetation and the elements since their heyday.
