A couple from the river Wear in Washington

I saw this overturned boat, the Zephya, while walking through the wildfowl centre and therefore had to shoot against the light and through the wire netting fence. The result is much better than I anticipated. I won't worry so much about scratches on my lenses in future! However, I wonder how this sad state of affairs came to pass, did vandals undo the moorings of this boat perhaps?

I have just noticed that there is a photo of this boat moored at Fatfield on my posting dated 8-12-10. It looked to be in good shape then.

The setting sun made these icicles hanging from the Victoria Viaduct glow like flames.
