Rented a tilt-shift lens one day.

Though it looks like a toy... it's actually a real dozer standing over 15 feet tall.

This photo was taken in a surface strip mining operation in southern Indiana.

This dozer is currently redistributing soil in a mined out section of the operation. In a few months, reclamation work will restore this part of the mine and it will appear as though a mine never existed here. Mining companies have to comply with strict regulations brought about by years of past bad habits.

    Its hard to believe that's a real dozer. It looks too much like a toy.
