#549 – Review of the decade – 2017

Telamon – May 2017

I vaguely recalled seeing pictures of a shipwreck in Lanzarote, and I was delighted to discover that it was just down the road from where we were on holiday. The wreck had been there for many years and the front of the hull had long since broken off, but it made for some interesting photographs. News on the internet suggests that 2020 will be the year that they finally remove the remaining half of the ship so see it while you still can!!

Merger – May 2017

Another ship, but this time much closer to home at Glasson Dock near Lancaster. This was my first experiment with ND filters and it was slightly successful. The ship was scrapped on site not long after.

Beehive Mills – December 2017

The mill had been used by a home shopping company since it stopped spinning cotton in the 1960’s and I’d been past it many times on the train but then noticed that all the lorries that were normally parked outside had gone. I checked online and found that it had closed, so I made a note to go and have a look as the owners wanted to demolish it. As is my preference these days, I wanted to capture its position on the landscape, and I’m very pleased with the photograph of the backstreet. The mill was demolished in 2019.

  1. I understand why you are pleased with the mill and the backstreet photo. It’s my favourite one, too. I do also like the ship images at Glasson Dock.
