When you think of oil, the first thing that comes to mind isn't the beauty of it but check out this incredible photo of the Athabasca Oil Sands in Alberta and beg to differ!

The Athabasca oil deposits comprise the largest of any crude bitumen oil reservoir in the world.

Wow!

Sand. I think smile.gif I'm only assuming that since it's called the oil sands and I can see the oil....makes sense though.

Oh...I was thinking it was sort of pushed around in a specific way maybe for some sort of purpose, but it must be just pushed away from the oil.
