The Trans-Alaska Pipeline is a known oil pipeline in Alaska. It runs 1287 km from the Pruedhoe Bay in the north to the harbor Valdez on Prince William Sound to the south. It was built in 1974-1977 in order to open the Alaska oil fields in the Arctic. 759081 barrels of oil pass through it per day with a throughput speed of 6 miles per hour.
The Dalton Highway runs over a large distance parallel to this pipeline. This picture was taken as I was travelling on it by car in 1991. By the way - the narrow road, which you see on the image next to the pipeline, is a path for service and repair teams, not the Dalton Highway.
This image is certainly not a photographic masterpiece. I show it here for those who've always wanted to know how these famous pipeline looks like - according to the original meaning of Trek Earth.

These pipelines are amazing & you have captured a good view of just a little of it... It puts the road to shame - excellent shot & I love the subtle colours of the terrain - leading the eyes to the most important part of the image.
Please forgive my long delay in responding to your last critic... Busy gal!!!
