Bolt from the Blue   32 comments

Hey Mark, fancy going out and doing a job in the Mediterranean they said!
After the weather we have been having at home I jumped at the opportunity, Warm weather, sunshine, no rain………..not a chance!

We’ve had rain like I’ve never seen before, last night a huge lightning storm, which isn’t good for our GPS equipment, today we had to stop Anchor handling for a while because the rain was so heavy the boat couldn’t see the rig.
More lightning today,
I’m sitting in a tin box on the roof of the pilot house surrounded by antennas, the thunder is so loud my ears have popped, (I’m sure they will start to bleed soon) I need a coffee but afraid to go outside and down the steps in case I get hit by a bolt. (Lightning not a dropped object) and there is water coming in through the air vents, which I have now covered in bubble wrap and duck tape, but now I can’t breath.
I still love my job.

Took this shot last night, hand held and just kept shooting until I captured some lightning.

Big Stuff   18 comments

Although the rigs we work on are relatively small the stuff on them can be pretty big.
Check out this box of nuts and bolt.

Even the coffee is huge, eat your heart out Starbucks.
