Photographer's Note

The once flourishing tin mines of Cornwall now lie abandoned with just one or two remaining open as working museums. The end for these mines came when more easily obtained sources were found in other parts of the world and when the price of tin dropped these mines were no longer viable. This chapel lies on a headland just south of St Ives. The sky is from my back garden and replaces a blank white sky. I thought the colouring a good match for the stonework which as you can see shows the rusty colour of tin and iron bearing ore. This same red, at one time discoloured the sea in these parts and some areas close to the outflows of the workings retain the stain on the beaches to this day. Scanned from Kodak Elitechrome 100ISO. Camera - Olympus OM2n and 28-70mm lens.
