I'd say of all the shots I've seen of this location over the years, this one best describes the sense of place.

16 Nov 2010 8:50am

@John Leech: Thanks John!....I don't reckon it's possible to get a really good photo showing all of the wrecked boats as it ends up looking like a jumbled mess and, as you said, the separation from the background and each other can be difficult when showing them all together.

k@ from Paris, France

Ah those wonderful contrasts, like an ink.
