view from my deck

Timely shot of the Chevron oil refinery going up in flames this afternoon. Well, it wasn't quite that dramatic from the deck view since it was pretty far away (about 15 miles I estimate). The image was captured with the 35mm equivalent of a 600mm lens (after cropping).

    Dear Stephen
    Just wanted to let you know that we also used your excellent picture as part of our report, "Outsourcing Hot Air" (appropriately credited to you, of course). It's a fantastic shot, and as soon as our campaigner saw it he wanted to include it in the report - it gets a full double spread treatment! You can view it via here: (pages 8 & 9).

    Thank you very much!
