Hoist away

How come rocks never look anywhere as big in the photos as they are in real life?
This huge chunk of granite had to be lowered into place using a tripod and a hoist.
It went in to make up an important section of foundation of the dry stone bridge abutment.
We could have never lifted it in without this tripod set up. 


Just as tripods are used to lift heavy motor blocks in and out of vehicles needing major repair, we 'motored' to get our heavy block into the bridge, in order to repair the damage from previous two days of continuous flooding.
