Comments (15) Sunset With Three Oil Platforms - 01-24-2006 05:30:00

A view of the sunset looking toward the West through the Santa Barbara Channel from Rincon Point. These are Platforms "A", "B", and "C". On the morning of January 28, 1969 an uncontrolled blowout occurred at Platform "A" which resulted in a major oil spill that affected much of the Santa Barbara Channel coastline, including the beaches at Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Summerland, and Ventura.

Finally, I have received several requests to include full-size images in my RSS feed, so last night, I edited the code that generates this site's RSS content. It may take a day or two for various RSS aggregators to update. If you track this photoblog using RSS, you should soon start to see the full-sized images in your feed. If you experience any problems caused by this modification, please send me an E-mail and let me know about it.
