Isle of Man New Bronto & Pump together
Here is a different kind of photo showing our new Bronto skylift F32 RL and our new Volvo FL pump on the fourcourt of our station in Douglas. Its hard to get a shot like this as the main road in front of the station is 4 lanes wide and always busy in the daytime. I shot this photo during the TT race week when the road just past the station is closed for the bike racing and therefore i was able to stand in the middle of the road to achieve this great shot.
