Maritime and railway remains

Boats, trains and planes embody the machine power of the industrial age. Having outlived their usefulness or simply too old, they are abandoned to rust and slowly decompose amidst the silt and weeds. Remains that become sanctuaries for wildlife, witnesses to history and sometimes even works of art.
