Sunrise at the construction site



I've come to really appreciate construction cranes, especially in silhouette. I hope it's not a Freudian thing, with these phallic symbols and all, but I just like the graphic lines.

We tend to think of the sun and the moon at opposite ends of the sky in our line of sight. but not always, as this shot attests. Both the sun and the moon actually wander around the sky from north to south a lot more than many people think and sometimes, like here, they line up quite closely.

  1. There's more to construction cranes than being utilized in the construction sites. They metaphorically show the progress of a city, as well as being instruments to the rise of the building. All the steel and ironwork that these cranes haul show just how strong and adamant they are.

    The intense dark blue night sky slowly taking the place of the bright sunset: magical.
