View Full Version : Craggy Shores

There's been all sorts of vessels wrecked on these shores from 18th century French treasure ships to Spanish galleons full of New World gold. Apparently there's a "secret" relatively recently discovered wreck or two just offshore from here that contain multi-millions in treasure. Of course it's all tied up in legal wrangling . . guaranteed. I've heard it's Spanish gold but . . .:shrug: All I know is that I wouldn't want to have been washed ashore here a few hundred years ago . . or even today.

Thanks, Iggy. Actually held gold coins in my hand from a wreck off Louisbourg one time. Gold coins are very heavy and surprised me. With the world the way it is now, most discovered wrecks are kept VERY secret. They have been diving off Dingwall for years now on a French treasure ship. In fact there was a documentary on it. It was going on a long time before it was made public. I could tell you treasure stories from Louisbourg if we ever have the chance to meet. There is SOOOOO much unrecovered gold and the like that disappeared and has yet to be found. Ghost stories over there are another of my passions. Maybe someday . . . LOL

Nice action capture, and composition, with the explosion of water on the rocks, and the wave movement in the foreground.
