SkyWatch: Oil Tanks

Jeddah is the largest seaport in Saudi Arabia.  Within the country, oil is transported to these enormous oil holding tanks in Jeddah, awaiting shipment to various places around the world.  There are dozens of these gleaming silver storage tanks visible from the freeway.  The sun was starting to go down at the end of the day and I thought the sky looked pretty.

    Great photo full of colour and drama, the reflections off the oil tanks does make for an interesting view.

    Thanks for sharing with us all in sky watch friday.

  2. The sky does look pretty and those hundreds of tanks are interesting. I bet it would be interesting to see how it gets moved from the tanks to the ships.

    A lovely sky aginst the oil tanks. The silver of the tanks complements the pink. How interesting to live in Jeddah. I live in South Africa and a friend of mine is teaching English in Saudi Arabia. It must be very interesting to learn to know such a different part of the world. I trust 2009 will be a good year for you and for your family. Warm wishes!
