A lot of individuals have a problem with extrapolating 2 dimensional
images to 3 dimensions.
We always give demonstrations to our students of what images you can see
if you take a tube with a side branch or a division into two tubes and
section it from various angles. You get a lot of interesting images and
with oblique cuts of vessels a false impression of the thickness of the
Histology texts such as Gartner and Hiatt also have nice diagrams in the
introductory chapter.

Thanks for everyones answers - it appears that it is an artery (cut
tangentially or on a bend)- obvious to many, but an eye opener for me!
Thanks again!
