Challenge has finished
How creative can you get with the wide angle lens? Show us what you can do with lens sporting an effective focal length of 35mm or less. Remember to tell us what lens you've used (no fibbing) and on what body. Compact and SLR entries are welcome, but make sure the lens used has an acceptable focal length (check our Camera Database if you're not sure). Oh, and no borders! Good luck.

404th place
This is a gigantic 500 ton coker oven being transported from Edmonton to Syncrude in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The vessel is 80 meters long and 10 meters in diameter. There were 2 tractors pulling and 2 more pushing. The Schuerle trailer units each have 160 wheels for a total of 320 (not including the Kenworth tractors) Overall height of the load is 38 feet. I have a video of it on YouTube as well. Loads are moved in winter when the roads are frozen solid.
