Meisho Maru No 38

October 5, 2016

Long exposure image of the Meisho Maru 38 wreck, it lies a few 100 meters from the most southern tip of the African continent where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. The small Japanese fishing vessel ran aground in stormy waters on 16 November 1987, luckily all 17 crew members made it safely ashore. Only half of the wreck remains, as it broke apart a few years back and was claimed by the sea.

Shot this early one morning with a 10-stop ND - a very long exposure indeed. Smoothed out the water a little more in post.

Hi Bertus. You have a beautiful picture here. I can relate to this image as I'm in the navy, and have crossed cape of good hope a few times. This image immediately took my thoughts to legend of the flying ducthman.
Great picture once again. Thank you for sharing.
