Photographer's comments:

I captured this moment on the pier of the city of Río Gallegos, in Argentine Patagonia. It happened at high tide, at noon in the February full moon phase, where the water level is higher than usual. The ship has been stranded without operations since 96. I tried to find a strong and simple composition at the same time playing with the vastness of the sky and the water.
