Concrete truck in the "new" 4th Bore of the Caldecott tunnel with its "reinforcing wheels" in the full upright position, making it look somewhat like the truck is driving on the ceiling.

Sorry about the title but I don't know how to make type show up upside-down ... :-)

Shot with my primitive phone camera, handheld, auto mode ...

Andi here from the Critique Club.

I did consider writing this backwards but after .bulc euqitirc eht morf ereh idna I considered it hard work for me and the your ;)

I often feel minimal editing challenges bring out the best in people photographically but it can oft do the reverse. In this case the only thing I think this image lacks is a little contrast and sharpness. Composition is spot on and the cement truck is a fantastic subject for the challenge (serendipity or planned?).

I'm surprised it didn't finish higher.
