Each one of those steel coils weighs about 20 tons, so that a heavy-duty forklift like this one is needed to move them around the docks.

Here is another shot of the rolls of steel from the B&W a Week Side Challenge: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/82749/120/684410.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/82749/120/684410.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

You call that a forklift? Pah, that's nothing.

Great use of colour, Erik, and lots of detail, too.

Nice dock shot. I should wander down to our yard and shoot some of the equipment there - I work for a scrap processor, so we do things like bale metal so it'll fit into steel furnaces. They also have magnetic cranes - just a huge electro-magnet instead of a claw - and an auto shredder that chews through a car in about 90 seconds, reducing it to fist-sized chunks. Rumor has it one of our staff parked in the wrong spot...
