Headache

Every day, I drive past the Eureka Quarry.  They have a small boneyard on site and it includes a crane.  In the 12+ years I've been driving past this Quarry, I've never seen the crane operate however, about 2 weeks after I shot this, I saw the crane lifting something (talk about patience!).  The crane is behind a fence, but the structure extends way beyond the fence. 

This link is to google maps.  You can see that crane in the middle of the map (ain't the internet grand?). 

Standing directly under the crane head and looking up at a potentially serious headache.

I rather like this shot - zoomed in on the structure.

I'm a fan of the middle photo. Probably has something to do with the fact that I work on construction equipment for a living. Nice work!

Thanks Marka, I like that one as well. I was thinking on converting it to B&W, maybe that would cool.

Well I have to agree about the internet and the story certainly compliments the photos... seems you couldn't get out into space to get the whole thing into one picture. The details are great!
