A World Above

December 26, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

We often hear the words - looking up. 

Most of the time we associate that with positive thinking, seeing the upside of things, and a somewhat positive view of the world. And that's part of it. The other side is, really, to be looking up. As in, tilt your head up and look at things that stand tall up above you. 

Now as a mostly industrial photographer, I tend to be in the latter situation quite a lot. I walk around - and climb all the way up - structures that are usually way bigger and taller than me. In a way, I am blessed that I get to see a world above. A world that I get to spend time in, up close and personal.

A world above full of wonder. 

A world above full of beauty. 

A world above that leads the way to the future.

Oil Production Champions

Way to go, Texas!

The Permian Basin is now the world's most productive oilfield, as Texas recently surpassed Saudi Arabia by producing over 4.2 million barrels per day. 

Being Texas-based, we are proud of this result, and we love the Permian Basin! Supporting the oilfield with our work is always one of our main priorities.

With Gratitude,










Old Wellington

During the Summer, I took a walk around Old Wellington.

Now a ghost town, Wellington was a railroad community in King County along the Great Northern Railroad, at the west side of the old Cascade Tunnel, which is now closed.

On March 1st 1910, while two trains were stopped there because of the snow, a quarter-mile wide avalanche hit the snow shed and sent both trains over 150 feet down the mountain into the Tye River Valley. Ninety-six lives were lost; remainders of the railcars wreckages can still be seen at the bottom of the mountain through the vegetation.

Of the snow shed, the initial part still remains today and is part of the Iron Goat Interpretive Site and Trail.

The western portal of the old Cascade Tunnel is also open and can be seen along the trail.
