Stone Remover

By Mike Gray  
Think i'm going to dedicate this image to Ian (Deepdiver) as his construction work images have got me off my arse to shoot something a little different and feel like using a camera again, Thanks Ian.

Taken at Portland quarries today, just watching these powerfull machines just amazed me today as they crawl up tracks carrying such huge amounts of rock and rubble.

Thanks for looking and have a look large if you can.

Regards
Mike

Mike here recons you should crop it just below the rear wheels and make it more letterbox style. Don't know that I agree with that but see what you think??
