IMPRESSIVE! This must have been carefully planned.

PS Thank you for the comment. It is a ship being emptied of some calcite (I think) for talcum production. I'm standing on a bridge above.

This is one scary spider. While I was shooting my B/W photo this afternoon, I saw a big one though I didn’t get as close to it as you did. What a great photo to get us all in the Halloween spirit....but without any critter him around and about the house Happy B/W weekend.

Fine photo, particularly with that shadow, but I hope you'll forgive me for not studying it too closely :(
