    Not sure if this is the “correct” sub-forum for these? A few shots from 2005 from a visit to a limestone processing plant. If you have not been to one – it is highly recommended. The machinery and the colours of the limestone deposits it produces are incredible! Unfortunately I shot these in .jpg back then…

    Hi Kevin,

    If I recall correctly, this is in one of the factories on the “Isle of Portland” on the South coast of England. The famous Portland stone (that most of the City of London is made from) is from there. There are a few manufacturers that source their limestone from the island. A very interesting place. But any limestone manufacturer should have similar machinery and limestone deposits around them. These really create interesting colours and lighting effects!

    Indiana where I live has a lot of limestone quarries.  Some in business and some abandoned.  I must try and seek a few of these out.
