haunting ruins date back to around the early 1900's when Hosmer was
the site of a coal mining operation. This is the end of a row of coke
ovens. Over time, nature has begun to reclaim the area. Large, mature
trees like the one depicted here have are firmly rooted into the stone
work. I wish I had a shot which captured more detail of how the roots
have intertwined with this man made structure but I do like the texture
brought out by the low angle lighting.
