A great B&W. I suppose they are ugly in a way. Remnants of the past. Bits of history.

I think this boat sank, Jean, while the crew were in Morrisons queuing for the toilet. LOL. Thanks for your very kind comment. All the best, Joe

Excellent capture Joe, old wrecks of which Scotland has many are always an attraction to photographers but I do agree they can also be an eyesore.

I think we have seen this wreck before Joe From a different angle maybe?. The b&w tones make it even more dramatic, and probably looks less of an eyesore than in colour.
Cheers, Rosa.

I think this is the first time I have uploaded a photo of this wreck, Rosa. There must be a couple of dozen wrecks in this stretch of the river. Thanks for your very kind comment. Cheers, Joe

I actually really like shipwrecks, Joe, but I suppose if they are too prevalent they might become an eyesore. Areas do need cleaning out. When the River Severn was at one of its low points in early June we noticed that several bikes, a supermarket trolley and a scooter were dredged out. The mud made the riverside walkway look really awful for a while.

At low tide, you can see a bike in the River Leven. There is also a car somewhere at the bottom of the river. Pictures of the car floating down the river were posted online. Nobody has yet discovered where it sank. I photograph wrecks in the Leven, and put them in a Flickr album. Currently, there are thirty photographs therein. Thank you, Amelia, for your very kind comment. All the best, Joe
