Skylight

Look waaay up …

This is a shaft in one of the old opal mines in Coober Pedy, South Australia. I don’t know what it’s original purpose was — access, light, air? — but it makes an unusual skylight! I think the piece of corrugated metal (purpose also unknown!) looks like a giant set of eyelashes. 😉

Posted as part of January Squares, the theme for which is words ending in light.

  1. This is so lovely 🙂 guess was an air shaft although when they first start a mine it is literally just a shaft until they hit opals, then they begin branching out. So could have been first shaft!
