Ugly/beautiful images from the Gulf Coast

The issue hitting stands today and tomorrow includes an excellent article about the oil beneath the surface of the Gulf Coast. Ambitious Alibi intern Patrick Lohmann (who’s also the Daily Lobo’s editor in chief) took a drive to Grand Isle, La., to see the impact of the spill for himself. He spoke to fishermen, BP reps and a hermit crab-saving ranger.

Look for the article online this evening. In the meantime, we’ve compiled this slideshow that gets up close to the oil clumping on our shores. I recommend a full-screen view.
