Not a particularly stunning picture but one that interested me. This (the two objects bottom left - the other large rocky object with the birds on it is ... a rock) is the top of the boiler of the SS Alba which was wrecked on Porthmeor beach in 1938 (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong).
At this state of the tide I noticed that, as each wave crashed over it and it filled with water through large gaping holes in the rusted sides, air inside was vented out of holes in the top and there were these two plumes of spray.
Well, I was mesmerised by it for a few minutes.
I guess you had to be there to fully appreciate it (and, unlike yesterday's, this is a 100% authentic picture).
