Underground Tea Break

Here, two miners pause, underground for a Tea Break.  They were sitting in a dark corner, so an exposure of about 30 seconds was required for this photo.

My guide and I (both with similar helmets and lamps on our heads) moved our heads around to illuminate the whole to the two miners, a bit at a time, as the photo was being taken.
