Out of the Blue

Looking North-West towards Bilberry over a man made lake for the China clay industry.

Kaolinite clays have long been used in the ceramic industry, especially in fine porcelains, because they can be easily molded, have a fine texture, and are white when fired.

These clays are also used as a filler in making paper.

The acid remains of the mining industry encourage the growth of Rhododendron, Heather and plants that prefer a acid environment.

The (clay) minerals in the water give it somewhat surreal blue color.
