I have no problem with this. 65 feet is not a very far distance and when people try to get that close, you risk getting hurt.
To say that it is preventing coverage is ridiculous. Why does anyone need to be so close to a CG vessel or a boom? There is plenty of devastation to go around and take pics of.
Nowhere does it say that you can't take pictures. Media often take photos from the air and anyone with a zoom lens can capture an image at 65 feet.
|Photographers have had similar problems viewing the oil's impacts from the air. Photographer Ted Jackson of The Times-Picayune was trying to charter a flight with Southern Seaplane in late May to photograph oil coming ashore on Grand Isle, but the pilot was told that no media flights could go below 3,000 feet, due to restrictions from the Federal Aviation Administration.|
