  2. Beautiful photograph.
    A sad reminder, though, of the state of our oceans.

  3. Slowly but surely the sea is trying to rid itself of an unwanted item. I wonder how many years it takes salt water to decompose iron?

    A nice photo that makes a statement!

  9. Some time ago a group of divers decided to do some underwater cleaning in one of the most beautiful beaches around here. Their goal was to get everyone's attention to the pollution of the Atantic. The amount of trash they got it's just unthinkable. I was shocked!

  10. It's sad: people have always seemed to think the ocean was a convenient garbage can. I was shocked to learn recently that the City of Victoria (B.C.) - across the Strait of Juan de Fuca from us - sends its raw, untreated sewage straight into the Strait.
