Some pics of....HOLES :laugh:
This is the 'Glory Hole' at Monticello dam,
and it's the largest in the world of this type
of spillway, its size enabling it to consume
14,400 cubic feet of water every second.

This is supposedly the largest man-made
excavation on earth. Extraction began in 1863
and still continues today, the pit increasing in
size constantly. In its current state the hole
is ¾ miles deep and 2.5 miles wide.

This incredible geographical phenomenon known as a
blue hole is situated 60 miles off the mainland of Belize
There are numerous blue holes around the world,
but none as stunning as this one.
At surface level the near perfectly circular hole is ¼
mile wide, and the depth in the middle reaches 145
meters. Obviously the hole is a huge hit with divers.

where does it come out?(the spillway) I'd be to tempted to start throwing stuff in it to see it go down. 38 years old and worse than a little kid:whistle:

Last HOLE ....I'm pretty sure most people have seen this one.
It's an absolute beast and holds the title of largest
open diamond mines in the world. At 525 meters
deep, with a top diameter of 1200 meters, there's
even a no-fly zone above the hole due to a few
helicopters having been sucked in.
The red arrow in the photo to the right is pointing
to a huge truck.

For some reason those things make me nervous, even standing on dry land and looking at them makes me feel as if I'm about to be sucked in and swallowed. Weird, maybe a phobia.

These are from my last couple of work trips to Virginia.

Charlottesville was beautiful, wished I could have gotten better shots but it was work.
