Imagine how thrilled I was to discover this wreck displayed in all its dilapidated glory in Torrevieja Harbour, Spain, but at the same time disappointed that it was surrounded by temporary fencing and other annoying obstacles. No doubt they are working on this site, as they have been on the rest of the area, which I hope to see when I return.
Still, I think my little compact did a great job, especially considering the bright sunshine. It was hard to choose which of the 6 versions to lead with, but you have some idea of the harbour area in the last two.

Nice set of images with beautiful colour, clarity and light.. I like V1's composition and light..Yeah, I saw the cat, how lovelySmile...
You did excellent job with your compact camera, I actually feel that compact produces a kind of water colour painting image that DSLR doesn't have....
BTW, thank you very much for your kind help and MOD on my photo and monitor..I'm still 'hallucinating'... seeing the greens...& even more nowGrin

A very good and interesting set - I wonder why it was there - just show or renovation? It certainly needs a bit of renovation to make it seaworthy . a very well camoflaged cat only just spotted

Great series. I like V3 because of the sun bleached timber. You have show the lines and shapes to perfection.
You may know this already, there is a very photogenic wreck at Dell Quay, go to pub and walk 50 metres to the right. I got some sunset shots of it that are ok.

A great set documenting the decay with such detail and captured textures, and the compact producing images every bit as could have been obtained with an SLR.....they really are superb nowadays, and I often use my Canon PowerShot G9.
