Crane decommision

I think this may be the start of the dismantling process for the lower crane.

Look at A-Frame cables now missing, in addition to no lights on this crane tonight.

Its nearing completion, amazing, the one thing im sceptical about is how the lake will turn out in the end.

Good work on the panorama Smussuw.
