I enjoy shooting aerial photograph because they often give a surreal view of everyday things that a ground level photograph just can't do. The giant trucks moving their load around and the earth moves slinging dirt look like toys from 350 feet in the air. I made this photo when I was getting images to illustrate at story about Cary village officials who revealed plans for the restoration of the Meyer-Lafarge gravel pit to residents. The 102-acre site northeast of Route 31 and Klasen Road will include paths, park areas, 60-space parking lot, a 2.5-mile trail circling a 77-acre lake, and fishing areas, which will be opened to the public later this year. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
