Photo shows a harvester amongst a forestry timber plot: an area which is full of evenly spaced straight pine trees, some with green lichen on. The harvester is a large piece of machinery which has an orange cab where the operator is sitting, atop two caterpillar treads to get through the brash. The arm of the harvester is out and the end is gripping a log which is has cut.
