It is dark when you go down the pit, and dark when you come back out again. I have always enjoyed going out with my camera to try to make up for the restrictions working in such places imposes on the simple things in life.....fresh air.....hearing the birds singing....watching new plants emerge, and just seeing the beauty all around that many take for granted. Now that I am retired, I intend doing so even more. It is my freedom, and on days when I can't get out, looking at my photos brings many happy memories back to me until the next time I go out....Simples !!!
I guess you have seen the light of day
we need to see whats around us, the beauty and the colour and you being underground has made your perspectve on things more acute.
Thanks for sharing
Live each day as your last, one day you will be right.
