I wandered into the local quarry with the intention of doing a few “before” shots as later in the year a volunteer force from Irish Wildlife Trust will be looking to clear the area of rubbish. At present people gather in the quarry or in the rim above, drink all sorts and throw the offending cans and bottles over the edge, under a tree, anywhere but a bin. Then there are the fly-tippers too. So I went to see the ugly side of the quarry.
As I entered the path above the quarry I was stunned by the way that nature was reclaiming the land and looking to cover over the carnage that I came to capture. I know everyone shoots dandelions, they are a bit cliche, but I just could not resist, forgive me please.
