Very nice mood. I really like these. Good composition.

Is that a boat wreck that we can see beyond the rocks?

Gentlemen,

Thanks for your response. Half an hour before, this was the scene with a wide angle lens on another camera. Light conditions change fast at that time of the day

"The Eagle" was a hydrogen gas balloon. They hoped for good winds. It didn't happen that way. Yes, there is a wreck on the other side of the cliffs to the right. Didn't go there due to the overall wether conditions and my right wounded knee ;-)

Alasdair,

Yes, they are parts of the wreck. The wreck itself is as I said is around the cliffs. You can see the contours of the ribs on the other side. Next time...
