Great shot. I did fantasise about the lock gates bursting sometimes when looking far down as here.
Great scenery yes. And lots of overtime as said, but as I remember it, it was easy overtime much of it: sleeping in your working clothes on "standby" while waiting for a lock, or a one way convoi to pass. At least in the night time, us Norwegians were not allowed to idle in the daytime, not while there was as much rust about as on this one. Stein.
