Beautiful photography by Torontonian Edward Burtynsky. Living in downtown Toronto we don’t really stop to think that there is this kind of mining waste happening in our own backyard.

Edward Burtynsky Nickel Tailings No. 31, Sudbury, Ontario, 1996
I’ve seen lots of beautiful Burtynsky photographs, but I’d never seen this 1996 series of mining waste in Canada before.
