Patrol Boat 119 - I took this shot 13 minutes after this new shipwreck touched oceans ground. Lots of dirt & dust clouds....the ship's stern was totally covered by a sand cloud that time. Ambient light shot, converted to B/W.

"A happy day" . As it is really hard to find nice objects for photography in the mediterenean sea of Turkey ( no corals, no "aquarium" here ), I am not giving up and will publish more pics here....hope, you like it :-)
