When I took this snap of the wreck of HMAS Gayundah at Redcliffe recently, it occurred to me that I had taken a few shots of various wrecks and ruins over the years. Some had been posted and some hadn't, so I decided to group some together.
This shot shows part of the Tangalooma Wrecks which comprises 15 ships sunk to make a breakwall, which is popular with divers, boaties and birds. I took the shot on a whale watching visit a couple of years ago.
This old fishing shack on the Maroochy River is a favourite of mine. I wonder how long it will be before it falls into the river forever?
On my trip to Tasmania last year I saw lots of ruins at Port Arthur of course, but this ruin was on one of our stops along the Gordon River and is part of a house in a long forgotten penal colony along there.
Beautiful Arrowtown in New Zealand's south island has a large number of ruins. The many varied types of miner's cottages are very interesting to see and explore.
Even bridges are left in ruins and I love this one, taken near Romsey in Victoria.
A timber tinker at Mt Matheson, Scenic Rim is slowly rusting and rotting away along one of the old timber trails.
I love the look of this weather worn dray which I saw at Hanging Rock Winery on another visit to Victoria.
And, lastly, a wreck and ruin of a tree at Hanging Rock which I named Lightning Jack. Sometimes, I know just how he must feel...
