Day 3 – Fishing trawler the Weskus I (West Coast 1) ran aground in a storm on Thursday 31 July 2008 just beyond Big Bay between Table View and Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa. Fortunately no lives were lost.

My interest in the field of photography began in childhood, starting with film, then a ‘splatter’ of videography and finally the migration to DSLR photography.

I hope you enjoy viewing my interpretation of the Natural World through my lens.

    Now you can place the picture. That’s good. The lines on the boat draw your eye to TM. Nicely done.

  • Thank you Ranald, much appreciated!!

    another great pic the boats make a great series well done xx

  • Thank you Karen, I’m fascinated by the forces of Mother Nature. Will have to wait for spring tide which is in another 2 weeks before an attempt will be made to get them off.

    In fact, you’ve dome it again!!! I can’t get the hymn out my head and wil be whistling it for the rest of the night!

  • LOL!! The same happens to me Ranald, when I wake with the radio alarm in the mornings and a piece of music that I like is playing, it sticks with me for the entire day. This morning it was Tony Bennett with ‘I left my heart in San Francisco’ and it’s been frustrating everybody around me all day!! :-)

    Excellent shot macky, beautiful colours, I like the way you set the ship to the side, excellent framing.

  • Thanks very much Dave, the salvage company is going to try and refloat both trawlers at 18h00 today, I hope they succeed but personally I don’t feel that a normal high tide is going to be sufficient, the next spring tide is in just under two weeks, that ought to do it.
