I just can’t get enough of the colors in this shot. The beautiful aquamarine blue against the dark red rust. Awesome. The dimpled texture of the anchor also draws me in.
This was taken earlier in the spring time while they were replacing all the boat anchors in one of the harbors in Lake Michigan. The original shot had the observatory in the background, however, it was too distracting and took away from the colors. With the number of anchors, and their relative height to each other, the picture really lended itself nicely to the 16×9 crop.
