Photographer's Note

With this photo I am trying something different on TE. I have not seen many sport pics on TE, but I think that this one offers a bit more.

The background is of old iron mines in Schefferville. The red color off the soil is caused by the high concentration of this metal. The colors of this shot have not been modified. The compagny decided to close it's mines in 1982 for political reasons, and left dozens of open field mines that destroyed many square km of this beautiful landscape.

These mines are great to play in them on a motorbike, but I would prefer to have nature back the way it was before...
