The Onset Of Chaos

"The Onset Of Chaos"  A lone pump jack stands idle in the still air moments before the passage of an arctic front drops the temperature by 35 degrees in in fifteen minutes.  This is a 60 megapixel high resolution infrared sepia toned black& white image photographed in early spring on the Northern high plains of Eastern New Mexico.  The image is also available in color. 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.   Expect to see more photography from this wonderful wide open landscape during the Summer of 2014.  Oil & Gas Photography for fine art by Robert D.

Last Breath

"Last Breath"  Features a Sentry pump jack or pumping unit on the Texas and New Mexico border in far Northern Culberson County Texas.  While this is oil production, this area of the Delaware Basin has been the stage for substantial deep lateral gas plays by companies such as Cimarex, Anadarko and EOG Resources.  The Image was taken in January 2014.  The unit is shown here without the Sentry Brand but may be included upon request.  The wide open landscape of Northern Culberson County has been a favorite backdrop for my Oil & Gas work since first photographing here in early 2012.  I have a number of upcoming commissioned projects based here throughout 2014.  Oil & Gas Photography by Robert D.

Left Behind

 A very old hydrolic piston driven pumpjack operates continuously on a Cimarex lease on the Eastern New Mexico High Plains.  The unit is photographed in one long 45 minute exposure with the aid of lighting provided by H&P Drilling's Rig 474.  The long exposure captures the movement of stars around Polaris the North Star.
