Default Offshore Oil Rig

I estimate that it sits over one-half mile out to sea, off the coast of Huntington Beach. They've been drilling for oil on-shore here for at least 75 years, but most of the rigs have long since given way to expensive condos, townhouses and McMansions.

It's my EF 400 5.6L prime lens. On my 20D it equated to 640mm.
