Large winding house

Near St Ives, making my way through the undergrowth I disturbed an Adder sunning itself on one of the rocks, that made me a little more cautious and noisy to give anything else ample time to relocate.

Oooh! Good thinking John! Forget the "walk softly" stuff!
I love this place- I'm impressed with how much of this house is still intact!
John Prior: Thanks Elizabeth, yes most of gods creatures want to avoid humans, and who can blame them smile

These old industrial things look so picturesque now but I try to imagine how this might have been a century or more ago..
John Prior: I suppose interesting then also, bringing much needed work and income to rural areas. The machines must have impressed those more used to horses also.
I have never seen an adder in the flesh! These ruins add to the Cornish landscape
John Prior: I've seen several, mainly in Cornwall, Lands End is a hot spot for them

That is a powerful image John, I shall be posting some like this but not as good...again!
John Prior: Thanks Chad, I'll keep an eye open
Nice composition. The building is so imposing but softened by the beautiful sky and busy, vibrant greens.
John Prior: Thank you Mary
Lovely old ruin isn't it, and I can imagine this would be a prime place for Adders.
As I was going to St. Ives... smile
This is a fine photo and an expressive view.
