    Rocanville potash Mine in saskachew: 1km down

    A friend from my car forums took me for a tour was a good time, saw lots of cool stuff. the photos sometimes might be a little shakey, I didnt have a tripod and was trying to shoot at 1/5 and slower shutter speeds... and thats not so easy. lol using the flash lost the colour.

    thanks man. I had a bunch more pictrures but they have a slight blur to them form lack of tripod. I was not to happy. lol

    you dont wanna know... lol. I did really good till I went back and watched the machine cutting through the ground we were on the exhasut path saide of the conveyor and couldnt cross it to the fresh air said so it and the camera got coated bad.

    These are really interesting! Well pulled off, even without the tripod there! I like to see the motion in the conveyor belts!

    They instantly reminded me of my brother's selfs which I once found on another site (a German one, obviously), look_here ---> after looking: still astonished I felt reminded? ;)

    nice shots you had there. looked good. ya no tripod we werent even sure they would let me take my camera down. so we tried to keep a low profile. lol. I wish the one of the conveyor was a little more in focus on the floor and area.

    Those are not my photos, remember. My brother took them of himself. Camera on tripod. Him pretending to be working (later he sure DID work). So they are his. But he works down mines at times. He's the one responsible for the safety of all those cars and trains down there.

    Nice series. Well done without a tripod. As mentioned above, they do have that Discovery Channel feel to them.

    The slow shutter speed worked really nice for the shot of the sorter. Very nice photos.
