The old mine. The angry sky.

The sea that begins to be restless.

Here, there is everything to make a picture... great.

Reminds me of Poldark. Andy
3 years ago.
Andy Rodker club has replied to Tone
I think a scene from the original series was shot here, Tone.
I read one of the Poldark books (I was bored, it was a very horrible day in Skye - we were stuck inside the mountaineering hut, the incomplete jigsaw puzzle had been half-heartedly attempted, Professor Norman Davies had run out of Polish folk songs to perform on his accordion, we had run out of beer, and it was the only book to read!); it put me off the whole Poldark shenanigans for life. I can't say that I recall ever seeing an episode!
Shame on me, I dare say!

Thanks, Jordi! You have to mine where the mineral ore actually is. Not where you want it to be!!

Jordi Bort has replied to Andy Rodker club
I want to pay tribute to this tin mineral ore for choosing this amazing place to live, in front of a brave ocean.
This is why I like these strange places, because mineral stands where it likes, despite being easily accessible for humans.
