Photographer's Note

This was the scene along the West Sussex coast of England at the seaside town of Worthing on the grey morning of 20 January 2008. There was a wall of wood / timber washed up by the receding tide and providing a spectacle for the local inhabitants.

The wood was part of a two thousand tonne cargo that had come away from the Ice Prince which had finally sunk off the coast of Dorset on 15 January 2008.

I managed to get this image (one of many, I made the most of the opportunity) by walking out on a wood covered outfall which was just above sea level and still wet and slippery.

The day was grey and windy which added to the atmosphere but made shutter speeds slow so the ISO was often boosted to 200 or 400 in order that the depth of field could be maintained without camera shake.

Not the most scenic of pictures but it is one that it will never be repeated as they have closed off the beaches and are clearing the wood.

What do you think?
