My hats off to the guys that do this kind of work. It looks brutal. What you don't see in the still shot is sometimes the machine starts to buck like a horse and the driver/operator bounces and lurches every which way. You also don't see the heat. It's 103 degrees!
I was coming home from doing a little grocery shopping and pass by this ditch project. I gestured to the foreman pointing to my camera and pointing to the rock cutter and he gave me a thumbs up. Another thing about stills you don't experience...the noise!
I have some images where the operator isn't even visible the cloud of limestone dust is so thick.
As far as work goes my respect to the ones that make the roads, dig the trenches, and move the earth all while enduring some scorching weather.
