Deepwater Horizon anniversary

I didn’t have very much time to work on this yesterday, but on the 2nd anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion and subsequent oil spill, I wanted to at least grab a few images from the area. I don’t think a lot of people realized it was the anniversary. Also, I don’t think a lot of people actually recognize the tarballs that still dot the beaches. In any case, it looks a lot better than it did June 4, 2010, the date the below photo was taken.

The below photo is from roughly the same spot on the beach June 4, 2010, about  1 1/2 months after the oil began spewing non-stop into the Gulf.
