During World War II a British cargo ship sunk off the coast of Egypt. According to records it was built in 1940. It nestles on the ocean floor and is now home to a variety of sea life. Coral has taken root on its frame work. The currents and water movement has changed the shape of the ship. Rusted metal forms a playground for fish.
A team of divers took a camera with them when they descended to explore what was left of the ship. They were presented with an eerie but almost fairyland vista. As they videoed the exterior we can see the myriad sea life that has made this hulking clump of metal its home.
As the team of divers move into the interior of the ship they are startled to find some vehicles intact but covered with sea flora. Other vehicles have succumbed to the ravages of the ocean and a broken door or rusted bonnet can be seen. It is almost surreal to see the tyres of the vehicles providing a home for various sea creatures.
The ocean is a beautiful but powerful entity – it soon takes possession of anything that settles on its floor. We must thank www.littlethings .com for giving us this glimpse into a strange but beautiful world.
