Nice shot, how often does that turn up.

Incidentally, what do you do when your not taking photographs?
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Every few days, depending on operational requirements.





Actually, during drilling operations, I'm on station to monitor the well control and tensioning systems of the rig. Between wells I oversee maintenence to said equipment. It is either feast of famine this Sub sea Engineer lark, whilst running/pulling the BOP and when BOP is on surface, I'll often pull a 36 hour stint, unless I have a decent assistant onboard.

You would think being out at sea wouldn't be very exciting photography wise, but ya couldn't be more wrong really. Liking the stuff you are posting up m8. Brings a different world in to the eyes of us landlubbers ;)
