Wind Up

By Goggz
Thanks for your kind remarks about the last upload, they were much appreciated Smile

This is the wreck of the Plassey, featuring in the opening credits of the Father Ted series. It's been there for fifty years and looks it!

All the rest of the gang had left by this time and I spent far too long mooching around inside it rather than outside, so this was a hasty shot while looking for some f/g interest...

I got wet feet as a result.

Ta for looking, Goggz

Wet feet again pete hope it was worth it.

I think a bit of a crop at the bottom so that vain leads your eye into the image.
still a nice image

What's this? you hanging around while everyone else had finished - never! Tongue Wink

A lovely comp, but the colour (especially in the sky) is maybe a bit brash - is it polarised?

Just my thoughts, lovely shot, here's to next year..
