Old Timber and Rusty Ironwork

Old Timber and Rusty Iron

Get up close to the old wooden hulks at Purton, and the old timbers and rusty ironwork just ooze character. I did plan to present this image in black and white, but I lost the colours of the iron staining on the timbers, which I thought added to the image. Considering some of these old barges have been settled here for over 80 years, they have lasted well, although time will take care of them in the end.
