Oil rigs that dot the landscape along this desolate section of California Highway 33 – known as the “Petroleum Highway” – in western Kern County. I specifically traveled this stretch of highway for its beautifully bleak landscape this summer during a particularly stressful time. I have a lot more photos and video that I will assemble into a full article.
This is a great photo. The black and white makes it look like a really old photo. Thanks for sharing such interesting facts about the Petroleum Highway!
I was thinking the same thing as Diana. Your photo made me look twice to determine if it was a historic image or something new. Beautifully stark.
Sorry about your stressful summer.
stark and beautiful.
That really spoils the landscape !
Very cool shot.
Not very attractive though , in terms of landscape.
This is a fantastic capture. Yes, stark — and well composed. In B&W it seems almost vintage.
This is west of my parents. It truly is desolate out there. But if you keep heading west, you hit ocean!!! I hope whatever has been stressful is working out and things are going better.
Very cool. I remember passing these as a child, and imagining that they were all horses drinking water.
