Oil in The Water

The following two pictures were taken on the 12th of June, 2010. They show crude oil in waves at Orange Beach in Alabama (USA).

Imagine this happening, wave after wave, day after day, on a beach around Perth (Western Australia) somewhere. Just too horrid to even imagine.

To see these pictures full size (I have reduced them in size here to fit my page format), and many other pictures relating to the BP gulf oil spill, go to the The Big Picture at boston.com. Use Ctrl+Click to open The Big Picture in a new Tab.
