1200 degrees Celsius

Today was an important day. Field tour with my diploma mapping supervisor and the future geologist respondsible for compiling the mineral resource map of the region. The supervisor was very satisfied with the map and me very relieved about that. In the 2nd half of the day we drove north to visit a limestone quarry. A cool visit - especially the view into the fires of hell of the oven in which the limestone is burnt. 1200 degrees Celsius viewed with the bare eye after the seal and window was opened for us. A cool view - and very warm!

1200 degrees Celsius!
