Shipwreck

While on Monhegan Island in Maine, one of the things I wanted to explore was this shipwreck at the southern end of the island in an area called Lobster Cove.  This was the D.T. Sheridan, a 110′ steel tug that ran aground in heavy fog in November of 1948.  As you can see, the hull is completely rusted through, and is slowly deteriorating on the rocks.  It was a blast exploring all its rusted goodness, with so many photo possibilities.  I didn’t get to spend nearly enough time here, but I hope to get back again soon.

  1. You’ve absolutely nailed this Steven! I would have been just like a kid in a candy store with a subject like this! Isn’t it amazing how strong and permanent metal seems to us, yet in the hands of Mother Nature it’s just another element that can be broken down. Time is a great equalizer. Love this, my friend, fan-flippin-tastic work here!

  2. Really interesting picture- I’ve also taken rust photos of the huge iron pillars that support old victorian railway bridges in Manchester. These were cut through with water marks, sediment and various layers of paint as well as different rust textures. Fascinating what you can find if you just look about youi. All the best with your future photographic projects, Kathy.
