Sunrise Rust

I got up before dawn to wander around Victoria and take photos.  I got some of the typical sunrise pictures but after the sun was pretty much up the light was so beautiful and I turned from the east where the sun had just put on a pretty amazing show to the west to see what the light was doing to the potential subjects around me.  I was wondering on the beach when I stumbled over this bit of salvage below.  I have no idea what it is but the morning light on the rocks and the clouds scudding across the sky and this bit of rusty metal in between made a really interesting image.  Getting low and close with a really wide angle lens can give your image a very interesting foreground that includes a lot of the background as well.
