Preparing for BP oil in the bay

This image was taken from the Destin, NW Florida, USA, side of the East Pass. The bridge is US 98, which connects Destin to Okaloosa Island, and the oil-control booms are in stand-by mode for the possible BP-oil mess that might enter the waters of Choctawhatchee Bay on a incoming tide. Date: 21 June 2010.

Camera: Nikon D60
Lens: AF-S 18-55mm VR Nikkor

I drove my bike one less kilometer today, because of this picture!

I would give B.P. a moon of my big shiny arse if I was allowed to do that on here. Along with my present Sunoco Boycott!

Thanks for your comments.

The above image shows some beached *BP Product* on the sands of Okaloosa Island in NW Florida, USA, on 17 June 2010.

It is really difficult to say anything about these images... even at a distance of several thousand miles one simply feels overwhelmed by what is happening in the Gulf of Mexico with the oil boom becoming an icon for the oil spill while the picture of the clotted oil makes one realize that the impact is both on a large scale spread across a large area of the Gulf of Mexico and on a small scale (I would image this glob of oil on the sand is an example of what I've seen on tv of workmen raking up and collecting).

I have to agree with Jan about the unspeakable emotions concerning this tragedy.

Makes me sick - not the photo, but the subject.
