Description

This is a working China Clay Pit -- there is a great view of it from the China Clay Museum: www.wheal-martyn.com Will open in a new tab or window/
This thing is big -- awesomely big. So big, its bigness doesn't really come through.

I did see some monster trucks dragging out 50 tons of rocks per load. They are probably in this panorama somewhere. Can you find them?

    I was more thinking Hitchhiker's guide: "Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space. "

    Did the hugeness of its bigness bring on the desire to become a lumberjack? ;^)
