We Sail at Dawn: Boats on the Blakeney Mudflats pt 2

Another quietly rusting boat out on the approach to the Blakeney Point. I find this indescribably beautiful.


  1. There's something about rust, isn't there? Such a human infection, you only see it where something has been made, created, and then left, uncared and unattended... Potentially deadly, harbouring tetanus, and yet such warm and interesting colours...

    I dropped you a little mention again. =)

  2. Thanks, John! Rust is indeed fascinating: aside from the obvious colour, just that flaking peeling texture is enough. A real visual representation of age and decay. So it's a bit of a no-brainer that I'd be fascinated by it!
