Only the Bones

I could never get this scene quite right but this is my third attempt and I happy with the result. A hazy, overcast day at the far end of Minster Leas, Isle of Sheppey, England there is what remains of these old metal barges of which I think there’s seven or maybe eight hulks slowly succumbing to the sea. Also the posts in the background maybe part of an old pier as they are too tall to be old groyne posts.

Note to self and other dog owners, don’t let your dog take his ball with him when you go to the location of your shoot… as the little monkey wouldn’t stop barking for me to throw his soggy ball!
