Plateway

Plateway
This metal mine had the stone blocks for a plateway remaining in the floor of one of the main access levels. To check on the possible plates used we took a couple of Outram type plates into the mine and discovered that they fitted the blocks perfectly. This gave the opportunity to relay a short section by taking multiple shots from a fixed point as we moved the plates along the tunnel. This is a composite of five images blended together. I am extremely glad that we did not have to carry more than two plates into the mine, they are very heavy.
