Photographing on assignment at a Caribbean tourist island. The hotel and beach were beautiful. However, less than 1 mile over a hill, was an oil refinery. This was the scene! Sulfur is often found in raw oil in the ground. Processing removes it, companies often let it wash away in the ocean, if near. Others, inland, burn it! Both methods are environmental disasters!!!
