Inbye of flooded shaft, Wheal Friendly side.

Facing the flooded shaft, taken with Olympus OM1, ASA 400 Colour print film. Turned out better than expected. It was on open shutter with a flash held alongside. I have swam the shaft with a buoyancy aid with the camera and flash in a rocket tube, but left the tripod the other side. On the outbye side it was a short drop of about a foot to the water, but inbye the water was into the level. This is the direction the camera is facing, hence the water. I was disappointed that the working did not lead anywhere. As the water was below the collar on the outbye side, there must be a resurgence further outbye somewhere.
