Back to the herring boat wreck that I photographed in August, on the East Lothian Coast.
I have been told that the wreck has broken up and decayed a lot in the last year as The Sea and Mother Nature appear to be reclaiming her.

A lovely mono and a fine, balanced composition.

This intrigued me a a thumbnail, and it has rewarded closer study.

It's a carefully formal composition - not quite symmetrical (the ships in the distance, slightly off-centre) and not on the thirds. Looking at your portfolio shows that you've posted a great variety of pictures of this wreck, and that explains why you've chosen such an unusual arrangement here. You obviously worked hard at getting as much variety from one opprtunity as you possibly could. I wish I was so assiduous in working a situation!

Lovely and thoughtful work.

The two pieces in the foreground weren't there first week on October when I shot this, there a appears to be a sandbank gathering just in front of the wreck now hiding many parts of it I've seen in peoples images when researching the location and the wreck.
Certainly made for black and white Chant, like it.

Outstanding mono image. The central composition works very well here, excellent tonal balance.

Thanks everyone .

Yes Les, after I'd photographed her I did some googling and it was then I realised how much she has broken up and/or been buried by sand on the strong tides. Agree that there is a sand bank forming, as The water was going over my Wellies on the approach to her yet wasn't when I reached her. I find it a fascinating subject to photograph and on researching shipwrecks I've found that there is every chance that if buried by sand , there is a chance more of her will be revealed again. A classic example is a wreck at South Shields - was visible at low tide then got buried and only recently has been revealed again , and more of her than some years ago.

Superb mono and variation of the theme.
Great to have on record the wreck in all her phases.
I like the composition with less emphasis on the sky.

Hmmm, I haven't been to this wreck for a while and it's a shame if it's disappearing. I think I'd better make one last return journey soon.
