Around Azeroth: Too soon?

No, not the Majordomo Executus sort of too soon. This picture, taken in the Cataclysm beta by Blueblue of <Speakers for the Dead> on Zul'jin (US-A), shows what appear to be malfunctioning oil platforms spewing smoke off the coast of the Crystal Shore in Stranglethorn Vale. Given the ongoing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, I'm quite surprised that this made it to the beta without complaint. Readers, do you think this hits a bit too close to home, or is it just a timely reference to current events? Should these offshore drilling platforms be removed?

Do you have any unusual, beautiful or interesting World of Warcraft images that are just collecting dust in your screenshots folder? We'd love to see them on Around Azeroth! Sharing your screenshot is as simple as emailing aroundazeroth@wow.com with a copy of your shot and a brief explanation of the scene. You could be featured here next!

Remember to include your player name, server and/or guild if you want it mentioned. Please include the word "Azeroth" in your post so it does not get swept into the spam bin. We strongly prefer full screen shots without the UI showing -- use Alt Z to remove it. Please, no more battleground scoreboards, Val'kyr on mounts or pictures of the Ninja Turtles in Dalaran. Older screenshots can be found here.
