I think it refers to the closed position for the control for the hopper doors.

Hi John: I like your exposure and technically well done. To my eye,...less is more as they say. I kept wondering what was closed and where does that arrow point... H u mmm   Posted: 02/07/2021 07:03:15

Hi John
Love the textures, and the weathering on the paint in places the holes and bolt add interest and break up the uniformity.As for the wording this is so appropriate for the current times.   Posted: 02/07/2021 14:34:48

John - an interesting image, but perhaps not as strong as last month's. The the nut in the lower right of the image is very important I feel. No doubt you have another similar image to make up the triptych!   Posted: 02/09/2021 06:13:30

Yes, not as good as last month's image.
I also felt that I needed to include that nut.
And there may well be a third image!   Posted: 02/10/2021 04:31:45

A very interesting image John. You have, as mentioned earlier, handled the post-processing very well. I am not sure if a triptych is in order, however.   Posted: 02/15/2021 12:05:08
