The remains of a boat/ship spotted amongst the rocks at Daymer Bay on a cold December day.
The rusty remains must have been there for years judging by the state of what was left.There were lots of pieces obviously from the same vessel, so expect more 'rusty' pictures.

Thanks for your visit.

Hello, Jean.

This is great! Flotsam. Well, I suppose it isn't really because flotsam floats and this is stuck on the rocks. I like the word, anyway.

Just for fun, I thought I might try to make the piece of wreckage/decay stand out a little more so I've done a little workshop for you. Actually, I think I went a bit over the top but see what you think - if you're not offended by my silly efforts, neither shall I be if you dislike it!

Actually, the image does look a bit spooky - it reminds me of the spine you see of a dead animal when it has decayed and is found either washed up or found elsewhere.

Best Wishes,

Very nice colours and textures. I wonder
my spine is at almost same stage.

Great rust shot - as you say, very spinal and, I suppose in a way, that's just what it is.
Seems to fit right in with the rest of this rocky landscape.
