This was taken during a visit to Portsmouth to see HMS Victory.This anchor was just on the dock side along with other artifacts recovered from Spithead,a stretch of water in the Eastern Solent of Great Britain, between the entrance to Portsmouth harbour and the Isle of Wight.I believe it is a kedge anchor and weighs around 300lbs,made of wrought iron.
I like it because it must have so much history and action attached to it.If it could speak what a story it could tell us!
Basically i have sepia toned,added some noise and cloned out the description which had been written in white all across the anchor.
