This is a photograph of a culm bank near Archbald Pennsylvania in hard coal country. I first shot it in Infrared then later did an inversion in Photoshop. Culm banks are the accumulated spoil from coal mining sometimes referred to as slag heaps or boney piles. Vegetation is establishing itself and the terrain makes it an enticing landscape for ATV enthusiasts and what appear to be veins on the heap are actually the trails used by them.As a child coming back to visit in this area it sometimes resembled a smoking hell as plumes of smoke rose eerily into the sky. Later as we became 12 yr olds we would play on the heaps riding down on cardboard sliders much to the dismay of our mothers.
