Linked 2

Multiple use of the mooring ring.
Again from the boatyard on Hayling Island, and continuing my rust series.

Sometimes I would find single separated links neatly lined up, short lengths laid out in rows, painted chain next to a tin of Hammerite, and chains hung up to dry after painting. I suppose they were being sorted out.
I didnít see many painted blue, like this one. Black seemed to be the favoured colour.

Thanks to all who took the time to look, vote and comment on my Rusty Rudder.

Go to the head of the class with this winning shot. Somehow you managed to blur the entire background and set upon it sharp, detailed proof of the march of time, and did so with a weather-eye out for composition and colour contrast.

Seems quite rare to see chains coloured like this, but they work well with the rusty links 👍

A 3D effect here - that mooring ring looks like it's curving out of the frame !
