A Trip Down The Tunnels
Ice Crystals in the Piggott Tunnel
Accessed by a 30m vertical shaft, the Tunnels are classified as Confined Spaces, so we filled in the relevant permits and donned fall-arrest harnesses prior to setting off. Once inside, Jim pointed out the stunning ice-crystals hanging from the ceiling, then disappeared to make his checks while I indulged in photography. Crystals are hard work. Of over 100 shots, about three were any good and I cursed myself for forgetting my remote flash (which would have made great back-light...).
It was still great fun. (Click below for more photos)
