A few nice mining pool images I found:

Photography – Of Old

This photo of old photography gear was a display set up behind glass in the: The Grubb Shaft Gold and Heritage Museum Beaconsfield, Northern Tasmania. when I visited in 2007.

I thought it would be a photo of interest to submit. to "Learning Photography with Neil Creek" photo pool.

It is not very good technically, I did very little post-processing. I gave it a small crop as there was a big blob of light in the top right hand corner and .. shock horror .. heaven forbid .. the remnants of a date stamp I haven’t bothered to lift. When we first got our digital camera, we couldn’t work out how to remove the date stamp feature (I’ve come a long way since:) … so consequently I have many photos which have been ruined and scarred by it.

For more info about the museum, click on the link at the bottom.

The Museum is located within two restored heritage buildings on the site of the 19th century Tasmanian gold mine. The rich Tasman reef was discovered here in 1877, and until its closure in 1914, the mine produced gold worth AUD450 million in today’s value. The museum features an extensive collection of mining memorabilia, artefacts and machinery. Explore the Grubb Shaft Mine; see the iron smelter, water wheel and working model of the mine’s dewatering pump, one of the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere. You can also visit the miner’s cottage, local store and the old Flowery Gully School.
The Grubb Shaft Gold and Heritage Museum is adjacent to the Beaconsfield Gold Mine, which you can see from a viewing platform.

This is the site where, in April 2006, a rock fall trapped three miners one kilometre underground. Miner Larry Knight was tragically killed, and the subsequent rescue of Brant Webb and Todd Russell, who remained trapped for 14 days, became known worldwide as the ‘Great Escape’.
Beaconsfield is a 30-minute drive north of Launceston (43 kilometres/27 miles) in the Tamar Valley.

Leaving Glenvvood Springs, the road runs by theside of the Roaring Fork for twenty-five miles, toAspen Junction, at the confluence of the Frying Pan,where a branch line diverges to the mining-campwhich is second in importance only to Leadville.The Elk Mountains and colossal separate peaksmake a near horizon upon that side. Here the Roar-ing Fork is abandoned in favor of its confluent, andalmost immediately the splendid cliffs called theSeven Castles are seen. These are semi-detachedmasses of red sandstone, varying in tint from a deli-cate peachblow to dark red, and towering ponder-ously above the little verdured valley of the FryingPan. They are the portals of Red Rock. Canon,whose commonplace title covers a long stretch ofthe most exquisite scenery ever encountered in anarrow mountain-notch. The white flash of thestream, interrupted here and there by still pools thatreflect the blue of the sky, marks an intricately wind-ing upward path, disclosi
