These details are to be found on one of the ends of The Broken Chain Memorial facing due West.

Wonderful textures and subtle colours ~ so sad

Amelia Royan on August 28, 2009

Again Nick, I think the colours come from the thin metal covering on what obviously is a lightweight aggregate. You can find details of the BBC coverage of the event here. Many of the dead were from Rogaland, and there were also some Scots too. The price of oil eh?

The Art tag would fit this splendid shot like a glove!

Thank you John, I'm glad you opened this strange photo - it is showing part of the memorial for the lives lost in an oil field disaster.

Greetings to Holland, Amelia

:-) YES...

Eva ..... thank you. I am pleased you have viewed the Wings of Angels. The memorial is dedicated to those who lost their lives in an Oil rig disaster.

Greetings, Amelia

Amelia Royan on August 29, 2009

Thank you Ria. This is part of the same memorial to the victims of the oil rig disaster in the North Sea. Many lives were lost, mainly men from Rogaland, the Norwegian County where we live, but also some Scots. It is a remarkable memorial.

Greetings to Holland, Amelia

Beautiful texture. Reminds me of a painting.

Nico Huising on August 31, 2009

Well seen and great capture Amelia. Great how you've managed to keep the colouring this natural.

Groetjes Nico
