Photographer's Note

It seems that abandoned boats and cars and such like make far more interesting art than many an ambiguous sculpture. Here nature has once again used her chisel to chip away at this old hulk that rests at the end of the Creek in the small village of St. Osyth.

(From the village's web-site)St. Osyth lies about five miles to the west of Clacton-on-Sea and is approached from either Clacton or Colchester along the B1027. To the west of the village centre is Point Clear and Point Clear Bay where Stone Point in the Bay is only about half a mile across Brightlingsea Creek from the historic Cinque Ports town of Brightlingsea.

St. Osyth is a parish within the Tendring District Council administrative area and in the County of Essex. The centre of the village is dominated by the medieval remains of the Priory on its 383 acres of land, building of which began in the year 1118. It was established for the Augustine Canons and became one of the great Augustine Abbeys of Europe.

I have tweaked the colours in PS7 in an attempt to brighten the green moss on the hull which makes a nice contrast to the mostly brown hues.

Thanks for looking, TW
