Sunrise in the Firth

A simply stunning picture by Billy Winton which, as he says, is: "a photo I took at work in Invergordon of the Transocean Rather oil rig berthed at the quay".

This is gorgeous - some off these pictures should be used as postcards. Invergordon's postcards are so out of date and don't capture the true beauty of the town. This would make a stunning postcard.

This is the kind of picture that makes me want to come home.
Currently offshore on the Tartan A.

Hi Gird, I didn't know you were offshore. It will take more than a picture for me to come home - currently living in the Canary Islands. (also Inverg ex-pat)

Definitely one image that stuck on my mind. To see the platforms and the welding sparks at night was really great. I surely agree this should be on the postcards.

Your picture is absolutely stunning.

The picture was actually taken about 8.30 in the morning on the 19th of December 2004 and put on to the BBC website within 10 Mins. (Got a stick of rock for it!) The lights you see at the left leg are lights on the scaffold tower going up to the main deck, not sparks from welding.
Probably one of the best natural, untouched pictures I have taken!
