It's hard to imagine equipment can work under these conditions.
Here this 972H Wheel Loader moves another bucket full of potash at the Mosaic Belle Plaine Mine.
Dusty conditons don't allow you to see very far and the poor sodium vapour lights don't help at all.
It's very hard to get any quality images from this place......
I'm forced to shoot this handheld on top of a pile of loose under foot potash.....

Really paints the dirty environment these lads work in (and shoot in too).
