Alaska Boat Graveyard


Traveling Alaska by car was pretty awesome as you saw in my last post.
Even more cool is when you happen
upon  a scene
that is a photographer's dream! 
At least this for this girl.
~smile~
 
 I don't think many words are needed today's post.
Enjoy!


























Hope your week is off to a great start.
I might be a bit absent this week since we 
are down in Anna Maria
enjoying a week of fun with
kids and grandkids.
Lots of sunshine, sunsets, and laughter.

Later, my friends!

Sylvia K said...

These are fantastic -- you should frame them! And Brian is right, there is indeed beauty left in them! Not a word needed indeed! Wonderful! Thanks for sharing, Reena! Have a great new week!

Sandra said...

they are all stunning, i think the one that is most interesting is the one with the boat, RV falling fence. so much in that shot.

bon bon said...

oh wow, those are all marvelous! you hit a perfect day too, as those clouds couldn't be more perfect for these settings!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Wonderful, I'd love to stumble upon that. Then I'd wander around trying to decide what to photograph then later viewing the photos wished I had done it all differently.

Don said...

Many great "fish out of water" shots!

Kathy said...

You have a way of making the rundown and dilapidated beautiful!

Rohrerbot said...

Reena, I enjoyed your boat graveyard shots. They do make a wonderful subject and your photos are awesome. Have a great time with your family.

My Journey With Candida said...

What a great time for you. A couple of those boats looked like they just needed some TLC.

Ann said...

what a great place to be with a camera. These are awesome. I LOVE that third one

bill lisleman said...

the first picture with the wrecked truck - it looked like there was a person in the truck. Being the sailor, I thought these broken down boats would make you sad.

beth said...

Pat said...

What a fabulous find! The series is beautifully photographed.

Mark said...

Should I feel sad when I look at those boats, cause I do.

I can't help but imagine the owner, the first day his boat hit the water. The dreams he/she had for them, and now ashore, rotting. It's sad.
But the photos are awesome.

Rosemary Aubut said...

Indeed! great post and processing! Love that old boat!

This is not a spam, but a hope.

Once can't help but wonder about the story behind these boats.

Out on the prairie said...

Its wild to woder what made them get left behind, many of those wood hulls have some major patches.Perhaps it became too much to continue fixing them.

Kathryn said...

Wow.

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Ms Reena from Alaska to Florida in one week...talk about adjusting...but then we bet you feel right into step with the tropical temps.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Patricia said...

Ooh, I love the red Virginis boat photo. Makes my photo loving heart smile!

Gillian Olson said...

These are beautiful captures, that last one especially. I agree that this is a photographers paradise.

Michael Manning said...

One has to wonder what others saw through the windows of some of these boats in the past.

Suldog said...

Magnificent. I love stuff like that. Old factories, buildings, cars, ships, just about anything with a bit of age and history to it. Thanks for sharing!

Amish Stories said...

Wow look at all those toys for guys like myself just sitting there in Alaska! Richard

forgetmenot said...

Reena, Sounds like you are having a great time with the family--enjoy every moment. Amazing photos of the old boats--think of all the adventures associated with them. Ahh, if they could only talk. Mickie :)

ladyfi said...

Wow - there is so much beauty in decay! And I adore your wonderful shots of Alaska in your last post too.

Dianne said...

so beautiful in all their beaten, weathered, worn magnificence

Grace said...

Beautiful concept ~ I would like to use the last image for my poetry ~ Thanks again ~

beccagivens said...

Awesome capture of these poignant "ladies" -- the places they've been and the stories they could tell. Nice memorial!!

Lisa Gordon said...

Oh my goodness, I would have loved to have been here.
Truly a photographer's dream.
