Description

Facts about the image, Anglesey Shipwreck

Anglesey shipwreck, one of two wooden shipwrecks at Dulus Bay on the north of Anglesey Island, Wales, UK, this is the wreck in the centre of the estuary, the other one is hidden below a bank behind the camera position. At low tide the estuary is little more than a trickle in a dry river bed, suggesting the two ships must have sailed in probably on a spring tide and became stranded then left to decay.

Photographed at sunset, I spent a great deal of time setting up the camera so that the marks left by the water on the wreck’s hull, aligned with the various vegetation strata on the hillside behind it. The wreck has been positioned right of centre with it’s bow toward camera as if at some time it will sail off. Part of the intention of this photograph is to show off the craftsmanship and design of the shipwright with the narrow bow section widening toward midships and the curvature at the stern to direct water around the propeller. An appreciation of traditional wooden boat building from a bygone era.
