A shot taken in failing light, at about 19.40 on an evening in early September. Two and a half hours earlier, when I'd first arrived, the wreck was entirely under water.

'Veerman' has languished here for many years - I first saw her in 1997, knowing nothing of her history. I now know that she sank off Dungeness in August 1990, after being run down in fog by a container vessel. She was towed inshore in 1992, so that she would no longer constitute a hazard in a busy shipping lane.
