Yes there appears to be camera tilt. He is still on the gutter. If you jack up one side of a truck 6 inches it gives it a heck of a lean.

The Goulburn Sheep / Ram weighed a littlee over 90 tonnes. The engineering to design a means of loading it with the trailer and to position it on it's new foundations was extensive.Reason for the position in the centre island was due to making room for the wire lifters the load was stable after all it did get to the required destination. It took 4 days to prepare and load it 20 minutes to take it to it's new home another 20 minutes to position it over the foundations and 2 days to remove the beams and brackets used for the move.

Did you hit that pie shop up at the bakery at the southern end of town? They have the best pies I've had for a bloody long time there.

Lang, if you look at the wheels on the float under the sheep you'll notice the adjustable suspension on the right hand side wheels is extended to compensate for the left hand wheels on the curbing.

Just took out the cameraman's lean and made the pole at the back vertical. Does not look nearly as bad.
