Driving through Portrush I saw this sculpture built I believe to mark the centenary of the Titanic. Just had my camera and alas no tripod so had to make the best of it. Been back a few times but the local council must be saving on electric. The lighting is switched off.

Many thanks to all who voted and left comments on my previous upload. A special thanks to Graham (Digital-Boi) and Ann (Eas) for their much appreciated UAs
