The photo, The Venture, captures the spirit and imagination. This one is for the dream and risk involved for the last true pioneers. The hope and enterprise of taking a chance on putting it all on the line for the ultimate payoff. The idea that hard work is rewarded. This is the spirit of adventure meets the end of another day. Being out on a smaller location has such a different feel. There is a true sense of the last frontier.
Catching the sun setting perfectly behind this rig and with a smaller set up the environment has a real sense of hope. The idea that hard work and a little luck pays off. Though smaller, make no mistake about the work involved and the pride of the men that work here. Many of the smaller companies still run things like the good old days. There is a respect for those who have come before you. An admiration for the owner, who worked his way up. The company man seeing his own sons break out under his watchful eye. The Venture is not for the faint of heart.
