Ghost Ship

Close up of derelict light ship with three ropes

Last night we had our first photowalk of the year, a nightwalk along the Docklands of Dublin. Most of my pictures from this walk emphasise on the spooky atmosphere there at night which is luckily still left despite all the development in the area.
The light ship near the Point always fascinates me so yesterday was no different. Usually I would try to take a picture that shows the broken windows or the rubbish on it, this time the ropes catched my eye and the picture basically came out exactly the way I had it in mind.
