The lignite mine near Zittau. I live about 1 km away. The images were photographed at the western edge of the pit. approximately three days after the great flood of 2010 in Zittau and the surrounding country and the Neisse Mandau had burst its banks. The old alike stood so high that it almost ran into the pit. The dan run along the pit road Sieniawka to Zgorzelec stood almost completely under water.
