Once a hive of activity Merrivale Granite Quarry closed in 1997,now spindly trees and rushes grow amongst the remaining boulders around the site.
The sturdily quarry hut remains intact,a haven for wandering sheep.

Very nice b&w capture of this photogenic scenery.
The lonesome tree at right part adds a unique taste to your compo.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Black and white accentuates the evident sense of dereliction and brings a particular mood to the scene. I like the point of view and the juxtaposition between the various buildings. The spindly tree silhouetted against that attractive sky brings further interest to the composition. The image is very nicely lit and has a fine range of tones. I wish you and Gladys a very pleasant weekend.

Probablement le seul point de vue avec un fil électrique dans le cadre.Mais quel bel effet de suivre le mur sur la droite pour découvrir le paysage campagnard. Une belle utilisation du noir et blanc.

I like very much these abandonned places, where a lot of good photographs can be made ;)
A nice grey tones image, very well framed

B&W is always an effective choice for anything dead, defunct, abandoned, nostalgic etc. so you have made a good choice over here. The thing that really enhances the mood is the dead tree...it shows nothing vlauable is left in this place. Very well thought out, and executed.
Excellent photo and thanks for sharing.

une magnifique composition N&B, bien cadrée avec le mur sur la droite s'ouvrant sur ce paysage.
