Long Day Ahead

Every day is a long day for those working in construction - My hat is off to them!
I found this early Sunday morning while on my way to the Ranch to check on the Longhorns - My goal was to photograph the Longhorns at sunrise when I came across this heavy equipment on the side of a new road that just opened. I patiently waited for the sun to rise to get this image!
