Was at the Garzweiler surface mine yesterday and took some photographs from the northern border of that huge hole.

A quick edit.

I’m pretty sure that was a really dusty environment, but I’ve decided to clean the air to have a better look at the machinery.

I’ve also been really concerned about the darkness of the black stratum along the middle part of the image (it kept being greyish, instead of black).

That’s an awe-inspiring machine, isn’t it. That not-so-tiny front loader, next to one of the huge tracks, is completely minimized by it.
