The previous post shows some panoramas of an open pit mine site. The images were taken with a 600mm lens from at least a couple of kilometres away. In trying to convey the sheer large scale of the place it is cool to compare the size of the equipment used.
The first image is shows a utility pick up truck next to a haul truck in the Highland valley pit. You can see the haul truck tires themselves are twice as high as the pickup let alone the rest of the haul truck. Up close a haul truck is almost like seeing something the size of a house moving.
The second image shows is of a worker inside the bucket of an electric shovel used at another mine. It gives a pretty good scale indicator of how big an electric shovel really is.
Then compare the size of the equipment to the pit size and the scale becomes even more pronounced…this mine is huge.
