Images of a Big Island


I went back down to Shute Hbr today to try and get some images that give an idea of the desolate look of vessel that has found itself on the beach due to forces that are sometimes far greater than the seamen who spend a lot of their time doing everything in their power to keep their boats afloat!

Luckily these vessels have suffered little real damage compared to many others and hopefully will be afloat again, albeit with some ingenuity,brute force and funds.
“We don’t have a problem, it’s just an unresolved situation we haven’t thrown enough time and money at yet!”.

The biggest cost will be the loss of earnings for the various commercial vessls that have found themselves in this predicament.

    Nice work Tim,

    You have portrayed the hopelessness of the situation very well and added some drama with the treatment you have selected!

  3. Thanks for your comments Jamie & Mark, I think I can probably do some more to them but I am fairly happy with them for now.

    It’s great to read and see some of your images from this event Tim. With so many stranded yachts ashore making for some different subject matter too. top work mate !

  7. It could have been a lot worse for sure! Happily most of the vessels pictured live to float another day. Some others were not so lucky!
    Thanks for your comment Tony.
