Daily Prompt: Safety

The Daily Prompt’s Theme today is ‘Safety’ and an image the jumped straight into my mind was one I took a while back of a stricken fishing boat called the ‘Argent’. The boat came aground just as it was leaving Campbeltown Loch across from Davaar Island in an area called The Red Rocks. The details of the incident are vague but from a photographic view point it provided us local amateur photographers with a rare opportunity to get up close to a grounded boat.

I think it is very ironic that the boat came aground within a short distance of the ‘safety’ of the lighthouse in the background, which creates a great juxtaposition in photographic terms. These images were taken a few months after it came aground and only a few weeks later the boat was a complete wreck with nothing left, (if you are wondering the crew were fine, if what slightly embarrassed).
