photoblog image Merging

Merging

                 This was once quite a large vessel, you can't see in this shot how far back it goes, I assume it was a trawler, all wood. You can only get here at low tide, when the tide is in its almost coverd. It seems a sad end for it, I wish I knew its name, but I have had no joy in finding it.

This is just a few yards from where I took yesterdays photo, not the same day though.

The remains of boats always seem to me like the skeletons of animals.

This is a wonderful image, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Ray. Much appreciated. I've thought the same..http://blueskys.shutterchance.com/image/2012/03/12/ribs/
excellent image Frank. The Village in the background adds some context
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Rob, Harbour village in the background is where my place is.

Amazing it held it's shape! Quite a find...yes, sad.
Frank L Croston.: Well it doesn't really get breaking waves where it is, just submerged. There are quite a few wrecks here, all gradually disappearing, the wooden ones quicker than the metal ones.
Je trouve ta photo magnifique ! j'aime ces restes de bateaux surtout quand ils etaient en bois ..et que la nature reprend ces droits
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Claudine, it seems sad, but as they return to the earth they have a strange beauty.

One can just imagine the live of those who went to sea on her. I wonder what happened to her owner?
Frank L Croston.: It was a tough job, I wonder, it does seem odd that they were just beached, though from what I can gather anything of value was stripped from them. some were set alight you can see.
There is a poignancy to these decaying boats. B&W suits them well. Yes they do remind me too of skeletons of animals
Frank L Croston.: There is Bill, its strange to walk amongst the ones grouped together, this one is isolated.

In need of some TLC. No, not you Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Oh I get plenty smile I think this one has gone beyond that, Andrew.
Most often here, they would not be wrecks. Old boats were sometimes left near shore to rot with the time. Great for photographers as you ably prove.
Frank L Croston.: Well technically you are right Mary, its just that collectively they are known as the' Wyre wrecks 'though I think they were all beached on purpose and left to rot. Certainly popular with photographers, thanks Mary.
Yes, it really does resemble the skeleton of some prehistoric animal. Expertly shot, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: They do indeed, Beverley, thank you very much.
Quite a sad ending, makes for good photo though.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Brian.
A great find, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Ten minutes from my new front door Tom...Thanks.
Wow, really a great shot!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Paula, glad you like it.
