Challenge: Aftermath II (Standard Editing*)
Collection: 2019
Camera: Canon EOS-6D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Date: Sep 14, 2019
Date Uploaded: Sep 15, 2019

Timeline for this photo:

*Wake up Sunday morning and see a local news blurb that this boat got stuck friday night on the rocks on the east side of the island.

*Rush out there to get pictures of it for the Aftermath challenge.

*Arrive there to salvage crews working on removing it.

*Scurry down to the shore and quickly snap this test shot.

*30 seconds later, the mast is pulled down by a backhoe (you can see the rope attached to the mast) and workers all over the boat.

I was hoping to get a shot with a slower shutter speed for the waves so the ocean looked a bit more treacherous but the with all the workers there it kind of ruined the rest of the shots.

Thankfully no one got hurt when the boat ran aground.

Thanks for taking the time to vote and comment.

Terrific shot Mark. The angle formed by waves and clouds like an arrow pointed to the boat....
