I was photographing an LPG tanker waiting to go into Braefoot Bay, to pick up Ethylene from the Exxon Mobil terminal here in Fife, and on working on the image I noticed the plethora of wind turbines along the skyline. These are just above the city of Edinburgh, Scotland's capital.


I also photographed this shale oil carrier from Wilmingham, waiting to go up river to the refineries at Grangemouth. We are importing a lot of US shale oils as the Scottish government does not allow fracking here in Scotland, not even test boring, as they do in England.


The rig in the back ground is on care and maintenance, in the shelter of the Firth of Forth.
