Your wideangle pictures are really beautiful. How do you find all those shipwrecks? :-)

@Shun: Thanks Shun, the north west coast of the UK near where I live and where I grew up is absolutely littered with abandoned and wrecked ships, both modern and's a Wiki link to just the larger wrecks in the Blackpool beach area which is only a small stretch of coast:

Part of the reason for this is that the prevailing wind is from the west here and if a ship gets into trouble it's usually during a bad storm with strong onshore winds. That's what happened to this modern container ship recently at Blackpool:

Very nice wide landscape, Ian as usual. You really mastered those. I think I like this one better the Saltmarsh from the other day. Even though the contrast and lighting in the other one is more effective, overall composition of this one is more pleasing in my opinion.

Good image. The composition seems better balanced than that of Saltmarsh.
