Tim's One Photograph a Day

Corpach Shipwreck, Loch Linnhe, Fort William.

Corpach Shipwreck, Caol.

Corpach Shipwreck: On the beach near Caol.

On the beach near Caol.

We took a wander to the far end of the Caledonian Canal. This is where is meets Loch Linnhe, which is an inlet from the North Atlantic. Here, we saw the Corpach Shipwreck.

We walked along the footpath towards Caol, then found a route through onto the beach. I positioned myself low down to get this shot. In the background, hidden behind the clouds, is Ben Nevis.

There are no clues as to what has happened here. The propeller is missing, although this could have been removed after it wrecked.

It has obviously been here for some time, although research on the internet only reveals that a lot of other people have taken photographs of it!

Although we thought we were here at low tide, from some of these other images, it obviously goes out a lot further.

Once again, the weather was a bit grey. However, there were some hints of sun. I have therefore given this shot of the Corpach Shipwreck some HDR treatment to enhance the sky and make the colours a little more vivid.
