Llanberis Slate Quarry

I had only walked through the slate quarry at Llanberis once a few years back. That was a purposeful group march to access the peaks above the quarry. I remember feeling then that the ghosts of the past seemed to linger in the abandoned workers buildings and made a point to get back there with more time. Years later, on the edge of a storm and alone, this visit felt like wandering through a wonderful and abandoned gothic film set.

I agree with Mari, these look almost unreal. Breathtaking and majestic!
