NS5512 : The Upper Nith Valley

taken 13 years ago, near to Dalgig, East Ayrshire, Great Britain

The Upper Nith Valley.
The Upper Nith Valley.
The Nith has been diverted and diverted again, to allow the opencasts to extract the maximum coal possible.

Ayrshire is a verdant district, or was, until the grey mountains sprouted. Will anyone ever put this back to some acceptable and beneficial landscape?
