Rusted Boat Hull

On Thursday last week I went bush walking in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park for the first time in a while.

I decided to walk to Berowra as I had not gone along the route there before.

It ran along Cowan Creek and was fairly nice.

I saw this boat hull near the end of the track running along the creek before heading toward Berowra station.

I’ve read that the boat hull marks the location where a person by the name of Edward Windybank and his family lived and worked.
I’ve also read that he was a ship builder.

I like how, despite something considered unnatural in bush land (or anything that hasn’t been urbanised) can be seen as a display of two “Opposites“, it can also look fitting in some way.

I don’t think the boat hull fits well, but I like how weathered and old it is.

I didn’t do much processing on these images.
There was no sharpening or noise reduction applied.

I mostly adjusted light levels and saturation to get them as close to how I saw them as I could.

This is my submission for The Daily Post‘s photo challenge for this week.

I hope you enjoy.
