Pollution 2

For a larger version (B&W) click on the picture.


After reading Zaydoun’s post about the cloud of black smoke (Link), I decided to take a photo of it.
Thanks Zaydoun

You can see how this cloud extends over Kuwait City’s skyline, I noticed this cloud for the first time back in 2003. At that time KOC decided to operate one oil field only in Al-Rawdhtain Oil Fields north of Kuwait (Because of the War in Iraq), and then the smoke got thicker and more visible. I think by now all the fields are operational, but why the cloud still hangs over Kuwait City, that is if my assessment was right.

The picture above was converted to black & white for a better view, if want to take a look at a larger version (cloloured), you can find it here.

I know the picture is about pollution, which is a shame...but the photo is a good shot. I love balck and white photography. I took years of photography courses in college.
