SS Waitangi shipwreck

This is the latest photo of the Waitangi shipwreck at Patea, NZ. In
the years I've been here, it's been a game of hide-and-seek seeing it uncovered
on the beach. Alas, I think it will be exposed for a while, since much of the sand has been blown off the shore. 

In earlier searches, there was an almost-vertical hill of sand from the shoreline up 
to the clifftop. Now that the sand has been blown away, it's rather easy to see the wreck and get to it for photos.

The rustic shipwreck fragments are great additions to the coast

I have always been fascinated by ship wrecks. Imagine the lives that used those ships and the lives that may have been lost. I have some artifacts from old schooners that have been wrecked near my gardens here on Lake Michigan in USA. Every now and then, they appear in some of the photos I take and post on this blog.

So much drama in this photo, simply beautiful.
