I like these two. The first, because sunrise (sunset?) is a stunning time of day; the shot has nice clarity; and I like the contrast of the sky with the darkness of the ground, and the sun's intense brilliance sandwiched in between.

The steel and the lights are lovely and artistic, with the man-made, almost lacy structure so perfectly dividing the darkness of the sky from the lightness of the earth.

It's ironic that this visually-appealing creation is for the purpose of moving... dirt. Juxtaposing the intricate fabrication of man versus the ancient plainness of the earth. Okay, I'll shut up now.

You know what, I think you should get a nice print of the last shot, frame it, and present it to your boss (or the company president ) as a gift. It wouldn't cost you too much, and would be a nice (suck-up) gesture.

If 'scads' of people loved it, you could offer prints for sale, rake in the cash, retire young and go live on an island in the South Pacific.

Okay... maybe not.
