Industrial Chromasia

Taken during a field visit I made to one of the Oil and Gas production facilities we regulate.  One of the neat things of working here is I get to visit some of these places.  This thing-a-gig pulls the oil from the ground.  Many years of operation have resulted in oil leaks and corrosion.  Blue and green enamel coatings have peeled off.  With the proper lighting, the combination of peeled enamel, oil leaks and rust creates a painterly effect that I find visually stimulating. Hope you enjoy.
