Morning in Oil Country

A view across Galveston Bay and just some of the many industrial refineries that sprawl across the landscape east of Houston. Fred Hartman Bridge can be seen to the left. This was shortly after sunrise on an overcast day, with the sunlight straining through the clouds and reflecting off the water. We drove by several refineries and the air was thick with the acrid smell of chemicals. They call oil "black gold" and this is definitely oil country. While I don't usually apply heavy processing to my photos I thought the editing here captured the smell in the air as well as that "black gold" focus.
