Welsh mining houses

This is beautiful Alicia

Thank you David. It's a very eerie place.I got a bit spooked.

While I don't know the area I can see that you've caught the atmosphere of the place perfectly.

Four beautiful paintings Alicia.

They look familiar to the 'barracks' near Vivienne quarry above Llanberris, which were emptied in 1969.

Well done indeed.

You’re very clever at catching atmosphere Alicia, you’ve caught the dereliction and abandonment of these dwellings perfectly.

The row of abandoned houses are beautifully done. Love the misty atmosphere surrounding them.
