BAD EDDIE

BAD EDDIE

There is a beach called Magherclogher at Bunbeg near Gweedore in North West Donegal. On it lies the remains of shipwreck which, locally, is called "Bad Eddie".
Although this wreck has been photographed thousands of times form all angles, it is usually sunset or sunrise shots with the whole ship in the frame. I wanted to take a close up shot to show the individual planks of wood making up the structure and capture the rusty nail holes where nails once held this boat together.

A blue sky day with a little cloud helps I think...
