Original Shadows

It was around 4:15 pm when I took this dramatic photo of the Original Mine. The sun was low and back lit the head frame, causing the long, dark shadows. The white snow is a good contrast to the dark shadows, versus the normally gray grass.

Original Mine

This is the Original Mine the hour before sun rise, also known as magic hour because of the excellent light quality. It’s cropped a bit strange. But I think it looks better than with the old buses in the photo.

Rainbow over the Mining City

There’s beena lot of rain lately, and with that comes a lot of rainbows! In the first photo, the mine at left is the Kelly Mine. The mine at right is the Original Mine, where the main stage of the Folk Festival will be.
