A very lonely view, being this far south I am not aware of the conditions but I woulden't imagine too many other platforms around this one.
In the Northsea the oil platforms are very clustered together and you are never truly alone as you might even have to travel daily to get from you sleeping quarters to your workplace.
The photo in itself is good, it has some quality issues like noise but it is not much so it doesn't ruin much.
Thank you for sharing.

Long time don't see you around these waters here, do you stay in the oil rigs without Internet or no time at all for leisure?
Very good PoV and the sky looks just great, well done,

The title justifies perfectly the composition, or the contrary... Anyway, the composition is good, the not too uniform sky, supported by the camera angle, creates a threat feeling, which increases the loneliness effect. Cheers, Marine

Great shot! The little rig in the middle of nowhere! I like the way you let the sky deep with the gray and white coloured clouds.
I wish the boat was a little more sharper...
