    I appreciate we have a thread for industrial (industry) photography but it seems we do not have one for machinery so here goes. Please do share your machinery photos. For inspiration there is a similar thread at that you may wish to check out.

    To get the ball rolling so to speak here is a shot I took of a Hitachi EX1100 excavator in action working on the construction of an underwater rock mound. TAMS are working on the construction of an underwater rock mound to provide protection to the Fremantle rail bridge. The works include the installation of 14,500 tonnes of limestone and armour rock to form an underwater rock mound, designed to prevent vessels colliding with the bridge.

    This photo captures the dredge, Total Support and its mounted Hitachi EX1100 excavator in action placing rocks into the mound. I was quite intrigued by this work as there was no obvious way the operator could be seeing how the rock placement was going.
