This is Lanyon Quoit near Penzance, one of the more well known stone structures in Cornwall, England.

Through the stones, you can see an image of one of the many old abandoned Tin Mines in Cornwall.

Hope you like it.
Thank you for looking.

    Nice one Rich….I like way the stone structure frames the tin mine and thus adds depth and a sense of scale and perspective.

  • Thank you Simon.
    You should have seen me trying to get down that low to get the shot.
    If I was a horse, they would have put me down. :-)
