Hello from New Westminster

Hi All,

I am new to the forums, though I have been lurking for a while. I am a mining engineer and use my job to further my photography activities. I currently shoot with a K100, which has served me well and survived all the extremes I have subjected it too, be it shooting northern lights 300km north of Yellowknife at -30C or documenting underground mining methods and equipment.

Here is one of my subterranean captures. This is an Atlas Copco M6 Simba Drill at work underground at the Diavik Diamond Mine, Lac de Gras, NT, Canada.

Welcome to the forums, Chris, and nice shot! You have access to a world that not many people get to see. I am looking forward to more of your subterranean photographs!
