A superb image and light.
I know this may be a daft question, but ... that IS rock in the foreground, isn't it? Not ice? (Looking at the 'date taken' exif info, I'm hoping it's rock ... Grin) And if it IS rock ... why does it look like there's the wreck of a wooden boat sticking up out of the middle of it?

(Bear in mind I've never been to Saltwick Bay, so what may be very obvious to others is completely escaping me at the moment!) Smile

Thanks debu and Tania
Tanya it is rock and there is a wreck, it is The Admiral Van Tromp which was a Scarborough trawler that ran aground on 30/09/1976.
The exact circumstance of the accident remain a mystery as the boat was on completely the wrong course and a senior nautical surveyor at the inquest stated it appeared it was driven onto the rocks deliberately.

No-one will ever know the real reasons as the man at the wheel John ‘Scotch Jack’ Addison was killed, along with one other crew member.

A superb image of a superb location at the right time of year for the sunset. The dramatic black clouds and rock contrast so well with the fiery red sky, creating a very foreboding image................ superb !! SmileSmileSmile

Phil and Richard - thanks for the info about the wreck; really interesting (and makes for a very photogenic, though slightly haunting, subject!) Smile

Compositionally it's all a bit squeezed on the top third plus black nab doesn't lean which is a result of it being put wide on the top third.

And that rock is Shale Rock, beloved of the Frackers. Wink
