On the River Severn at Purton where many old boats were beached in the 50s and 60s to prevent erosion of the river banks.

stunning perspective and dof, and what seems like a brilliant idea ... beaching boats to stem erosion !!!

Lovely colours and composition. There is a melancholic mood in this picture, as if the boat wanted to sail away!

I had heard of concrete boats before but just assumed they were used as an example to illustrate the physics behind water displacement and buoyancy - never thought anyone had actually built one! Fantastic shot by the way.

An expensive way to stop erosion but makes for a dramatic image.
12 Mar 2013 1:38pm
Great colours !
