2020—Wreck of the Peter Iredale

In 1906, the Peter Iredale, a four masted steel sailing vessel ran aground as it attempted to enter the mouth of the Columbia River during a storm. There were no casualties and apparently minimal damage to the ship, but continuing inclement weather thwarted attempts to refloat the ship and it became embedded in the sands where its skeletal remains are still visible after more than 100 years. It is now a part of the Fort Stevens State Park. I used a 10 stop Neutral Density filter to create an 80 second exposure to blur the water surrounding the rusting ribs as the tide rose.
