Aerial view of the opal fields at Coober Pedy

We went for a flight over Lake Ayre and as we left Coober Pedy we had this fabulous view of all the opal mines. It seems they just dig holes all over in search of the beautiful stone. They have signs posted for the unsuspecting which look pretty funny.
Here's the sign:
