Culberson County Texas

"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.
