Torsion

"Torsion" features Cactus Rocket Rig 148 drilling a two mile lateral gas well in the Delaware Basin of far West Texas. This is a 100 megapixel file so the finest details are present even in sizes out to 40x80" or 40x120".   An alpine wind break was constructed on-site insuring that the camera was isolated in near total vacuum.  This print is one of the single sharpest images I have taken and the first from the Schneider PC TS Super-Agulon 50mm f/2.8 Lens.  Oil & Gas Photography by Robert D.

Tall Cotton

"Tall Cotton" features Sendero rig 6 drilling a short vertical well for Pioneer Natural Resources near the small farming comunity of Tarzan Texas.  The emphasis here is the detail in some of the best looking cotton you will ever see.  The camera was mounted in a vacuum enclosure 110 inches above ground level.  The use of a perspective control lens means that each bowel of cotton is perfectly in focus from foreground to horizon as well the drilling rig and spectacular late November sunset.  The image is composed of 4.24 billion pixels and is engineered to be a 12x24 foot fine art mural.
