Thunder Horse At Sunset

The photo was taken when the Thunder Horse platform was being towed to its location in the Gulf of Mexico. At the time, Thunder Horse was the largest floating platform in the world. The platform only had auxiliary power so there are very few lights and all the cranes are down giving it a rather lonely feel.
The ship that I was on, Toisa Perseus, was leaving the location at the time and did a complete circle around the platform just as the sun was setting between the legs of the platform. The colors of the water and the horizon were just brilliant!
