This image was taken on a weekend trip to Chincoteague, Virginia in October of 2006. We drove by this old rusted boat several times during our stay and one day while walking I had to get closer and take a few shots.
One of my favorite places for photography are coastal areas. As much as most of us love the beach, life near the ocean is a harsh life indeed if you are exposed to the elements day in and day out. This boat can attest to that. It actually (at the time) appears as though it is still functioning in some capacity. There is a piece of semi-modern looking equipment mounted on the roof. Otherwise it looks like it has been left to fend for itself.
