Skies Over Security


Here is the industrial home of ExxonMobil.
Opened in 1970, the Long Island Point plant, situated near Hastings, 75 kilometres south-east of Melbourne, plays a vital role in the Bass Strait production line. Long Island Point carries out the final stage in the processing of the gas liquids (ethane, propane and butane) and stores crude oil prior to distribution to refineries in Australia and overseas.

It's wonderful how puffy, white clouds and blue skies can soften even a cold, metal landscape! Terrific capture and words as always, Gemma! Enjoy your weekend!

Your industrial shot is a breath of fresh air after all the sunsets I've seen today, mine included!

All of those tanks filled with all of that yucky stuff makes my stomach queasy, but I really do love the sky. It is gorgeous. genie
