Resting up. by LordLJCornellPhotos Resting up. by LordLJCornellPhotos
You all know how I love to photograph this boat which is stranded on the shore. It is a sad but beautiful sight to me. I have become very attached to this boat. To me it has become a part of the landscape there.

This boat was left stranded on the shore during a bad storm some time ago. The tide has never been high enough since to re-float the boat so it remains stuck on land rotting away. It is near Corpach, across the water from Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.
The boat is called the MV Dayspring and she foundered on Dec 8th 2011. 

Here is some of her history

Agree with Richard - could be a great book of photos and history (and over time the decaying structure)....
