    I love this picture. It is an awesome picture. I do have a problem with the caption though. There is no way the headhouse is illuminated by the moon. That is a light from the ground. The shadow on the right side of headhouse is going up. The light source is coming from the ground. Plus the front side of the front structure is dark and the front side of the back elevator is lit up. That wouldn’t be happening if the moon was ilumminating it. Still a cool picture.

    Great Picture. I love pictures of old elevators. I also love the full moon in the picutre.

  3. Unless Paul Bunyan was holding up a huge mirror, Louise is right!

  4. I’ve made a change to the caption based on Louise’s comment. And I heard from the photographer, who echoed her.
