Here is my offering for the photo competition.

First up St.Aidan's Dragline Excavator, formerly in use by the NCB extracting coal. Made for a surreal sight by night and was very difficult to light paint accurately.

Next up, Magpie and Milky Way, A successful attempt at capturing the Milky Way over mine scenery involving some very difficult camera settings indeed.

And Finally a study of a working Apedale Miner. The smile says it all.
