Default The tower crane.

Local building site, a hive of activity but protected from photographers by walls all round, I did sneak a shot when a truck came out.

JJ, It may surprise you to know the crane was shot in colour, as it was overcast and nearly dark, this is how it turned out.

Grounded that is surprising, most of the large construction equipment I have seen stands out like a yellow canary.

Nice. Now and then I shoot a crane but am never happy with the shots. Will have to try again someday. Sure is a lot of stuff going on in the second shot. Always fun to watch things get built.
