Beached ships at Purton

In the Severn Estuary near Purton, just north of Sharpness, is the largest collection of maritime wrecks in the UK, totalling about 80 rusting hulks. These were beached intentionally to stop erosion of the canal bank by the river.
It's a wonderful source of images, and I was lucky to pick a warm and sunny day when the light was excellent.
I think I'll have to go back when the tide is high though.
