The Theresa Mine
« on: August 27, 2017, 03:14:26 PM »

I don't see any record that I've ever posted this one, though my records may be faulty. A 22 x 11 inch copy hangs in my bathroom.

I've always liked those old abandoned mines. The landscape is breathtaking and B&W processing spot on.
Well done!

It's a fine shot, but I think you have posted it before: it certainly looks vaguely familiar.

Wasn't sure, and I'm still not sure, Jeremy. I think I've posted at least one other picture of the Theresa. This one turned out to be special. I was there with my D800 and a good tripod, and the clouds were perfect over the Sawatch range.

I REALLY like it (and I'm not a big fan of sunlight in images).
Also, is it ok to have man made objects in our submittals?  I'm new to the site.

Hi Alskoj, Thanks for the thumbs up.

To answer your question: a painting that practically defines landscape is John Constable's "The Hay Wain." The hay wain itself is central to that painting. I'd go further and say that a landscape without man made objects usually is boring. Humans respond to other humans and to their artifacts. I love trees, and lakes, and mountains, and wildlife, but by themselves they rarely ring the bell the way a good street shot does.

Fine image. My only complaint is, I had to Google "Theresa Mine" to find out its location.

Did you get answers, Rajan? It's at the mouth of Vindicator Valley, which is next to the now almost non-existent town of Goldfield, which is just outside Victor, which isn't far from Cripple Creek. I have hundreds of pictures from this area going back to the middle sixties. Nowadays, instead of burrowing out tunnels beneath the earth, this is how they mine for gold.

Just to test my memory, I've had a scan back in time, Russ. I think this is the same shot, albeit slightly differently cropped. It's a pleasure to see it again, anyway.

You're right, Jeremy. It's the same shot. I'm not surprised. Of all the shots I've made of the Theresa, this is my favorite. I try not to re-post stuff, and I keep a file of the pictures I've posted on LuLa. But sometimes I screw up. I'm also thinking I may drag up some of the old shots for re-posting. In some cases it's been nine years since the original post.
