Photographer's Note

I would like to dedicate this picture to my friend Antnio ribeiroantonio who is a petroleum geologist and use to work offshore in this kind of platforms. Com um grande abrao, Antnio!

Sometimes we use to go to this oil rig just for fishing. It is working around 110 miles (200km) far from our state's coast, straight ahead to the Africa direction!
We can have some of the best fishing there. Huuuuge fishes use to live there, or just to pass by. Wahoos, marlins, dorados, tunas, and many others. Since it is so far from home, we spent the night there, and beside the fishes, this image is something extra that I've caught.
The Brasilian petroleum company, Petrobrs, is already producing 100% of all petroleum the country needs. Most of our petroleum is in the ocean, like this platform shows.
Regards,
Zeca
