Into The Green

Into The Green is a high resolution 3:1 panorama originally commissioned to be a 8x24 foot backdrop for a reception area. The finest of details are evident even at close inspection due to the resolution and the use of a perspective control lens.  The setting is early summer in Reagan County Texas after drought busting rains.  The image is available on fine art canvas or water color fine art paper from small sizes out to 100 inches in length.

An Unfinished Story

"An Unfinished Story" was originally just a test shot from an infrared modified camera on a new location I was scouting in March of 2014. The image has since become a popular item in my Sepia Collection.  Look for a grand color or sepia panoramic from this location featuring the large thunderstorm complexes that frequently move out of Southern Colorado into the Texas Panhandle over the Summer months.  Most of the locations I choose to photograph are scouted months or years in advance. Particular weather events provide the backdrop I am looking for. Wide open locations like this one where the camera is directed northeast provide an incredible foreground for a thunderstorm complex up to 200 miles away.   The image here was captured utilizing a new prototype 100 inch tripod and panoramic head from Really Right Stuff.  The height above the ground contributes to the view all the way to the horizon miles away.  Oil & Gas Photography for fine art by Robert D.

Aerial Frac Water Detail

Aerial Frac Water Detail features a 400,000 barrel frac water impoundment servicing new wells being completed in the far Western Delaware Basin.  The 30 foot depth of this pond contributes to its massive capacity.  Water continues to be the most important asset in the nation's most productive new oil & gas field.   Oil & water logistics is rapidly becoming one of the most critical parts of the completion business.  Fine art oil & gas photography by Robert D.
