Jaw Crusher

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 28 February 2014 in Business & Industry.

Being the home of a mine owner, one might expect to see mining equipment on display. This crusher was a primary rock crusher that would be followed by other crushers.

What a formidable piece of mining machinery. This is truly an example of longevity, I would say. Great shot, Steve.

Beautifully-framed shot that you've captured here!! Great use of great sunlight and shadows. The image appears to exude "heaviness".
