A photo of the `` oil platform '' towering over the sea with its unique beauty has become a hot topic
An oil platform is an offshore structure installed to extract oil and natural gas from the seabed, and there are those that are connected to the seabed and made into artificial islands and those that are floating. Federico Italiano , a translator and poet from Italy, posted several photos of ``an unintentionally dystopian oil platform with dystopian beauty'' on Twitter, attracting attention from many people.
The first photo posted by Mr. Italiano is an oil platform made in the Brage oil field in the North Sea , located 120 km northeast of the city of Bergen in western Norway. The combination of raging seas and towering megastructures creates a unique beauty.

The Draugen oil platform off the coast of Norway has a structure that supports a ship-like platform with a single pillar, and it makes me uneasy that ``Is it going to lose its balance and fall down?''

The last picture was taken of the oil platform Brent Bravo, which was operated in the Brent oil field in the North Sea, retired and taken to the port.
Many of the photos posted by Italiano this time were taken by photographer Anna Henry. You can see more photos of the oil and gas platform on Henry's website.
