I love to find old machinery that is in some advanced state of corrosion, having been abandoned or otherwise found itself deposited in the landscape.  This was on a beach in north Norfolk.  Use whatever digital doo-dahs you have at your disposal to magnify this picture.  Look at the surfaces, the way they are flaking away in slow disintegration, and the colours: the blues, the ochres, the mauv...
