Recently I Had the opportunity to travel the coast from Florida to New Orleans. I wanted to see the damage from the Gulf Oil Spill - This is Walton Beach area, just outside Panama City - All the black you see there in the sand is Oil! This is just sad, sad, sad!

    What a cloudscape! The headlights on the cars add to the post-apocalyptic feel to this! Excellent!
