another day at the office

Saturday, July 02, 2011

this is what I get to look at most days at work. I was lucky this day. We were heading east as the sun was setting, not driving straight into it for three hours

The colors where there are no other lights to mess with them are amazing
This is BP Thunderhorse at night. In the bottom center you will see the cable lowered from the crane on the platform. In the top center you can see the bottom of the crane pedestal. It takes a little practice but the challenge keeps things fresh.
I know this is nothing special and we have all seen bugs crawling on a windshield before. This one was 50 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico

    When you said you had a tweety bird in the wheelhouse, a dastardly comment came to mind, but I'll resist! emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I enjoyed your photos very much. Those nice sunrises and sunsets probably help balance out those days when storm clouds dominate the horizon.

    Whatever that camera and fancy lens you want cost, send me the link. With pics this beautiful using the last camera we got, imagine what you and your creative eye can do with the outfit you want. I love your eye for beauty and I love you. That bug is very lucky they don't allow you to fish off the ship or he might have become bait.

    It's amazing what we see offshore sometimes. Migrations in the spring and fall bring several types of little songbirds a well as butterflies and dragonflies across the Gulf heading to or from Mexico. Out of nowhere thousands of them will be swarming all around the boat. We already had a tweety bird IN the wheelhouse. He got in through an open door and we had to convince him to go out the same way
