The street department was a big help in getting this shot: a quick phone call led me directly to the neighborhood. Usually we have to drive around looking for trucks.
After getting the usual shots of the backhoe scooping up leaves, I saw the morning light filtering through the trees and hitting the side of the dump truck. So, I was ready when the sweeper moved into the beam. It made a nice autumnal scene.
