The merciless sea....

.... and the sand.

Just over 5 months between these photos of the SS Maheno on Fraser Island.






I was surprised that some of the timber was still there.

Poor old wreck. But nice colours in the rusty frame. Interesting story...

Ditto what Mark said, lovely set of images.
The first one is my favourite.

There was a recent TV programme, Countryfile I think, that showed a timber recycling business. They collect hardwoods from old constructions, such as seaside piers, and recycle it. They plane off the lumpy and encrusted surface of the wood, and find it's as good as new. Most of it is well over 100 years old, and good to go for another 100.

And of course it saves forests...

Thanks. I really love the colours that you can get out of rusty metal.

But to give you an idea as to how the deterioration has accelerated this year, here are some photos of the SS Maheno which I took on my E-300 when I first visited Fraser Island back in August 2006:

It's amazing how fast Nature can break down even the largest man-made structures.
