Photo Essay

Gulf Oil Spill

Gulf Shores - 1

These are photos I took along the Gulf Coast during the oil spill crisis. Areas shown here are Gulf Shores, Dauphin Island & Grad Isle. Although, I didn't see quite the stuff that was put out by the Media, and observed no impacted wildlife - this was enough for me.

There were work stations set up at each of these locations and I observed the cleanup efforts that were taking place. In some areas, it was as simple as using litter scoops by many to pick up the oil clumps. There were sand barriers to help contain the spread.

This was a sad, sad, sad devastating accident with many lives lost. It will take years for the effects to be washed away. Recently the gushing oil was stopped, Thank Goodness!

Personally I would like to say THANKS; to all the people, companies, employees & volunteers that put their effort into this clean up!
