The 'Otago' on the River Derwent

The Otago was a three masted iron barque that was built by A. Stephen at Glasgow, Scotland, in 1869.

I like this one the most of the 3 shots...Maybe cause it shows more of the surroundings, not sure :) but i love it... fav

This is my fav of the series also. I love the composition. The foreground and background are interesting without taking away from the wreck I think. Fav.

@madeinnl @fbailey @jernst1779 Thank you for your lovely comments, yes this is my favourite also of the three :)

@mwhipple I had been here a few days before, but the lighting and timing was not very good. However, I also was attracted by the colours and textures of the wreck, which is one of the main reasons I returned :)

@zipper Love the connection. I believed he was on it from 1888-1889.
