About This Image

A ship/boat, dredging the waterways off the northern coast of the Isle of Wight, just as the sun was going down, which gave a wonderful warm glow to the image.

Dredging is an excavation activity or operation usually carried out at least partly underwater, in shallow seas or fresh water areas with the purpose of gathering up bottom sediments and disposing of them at a different location, mostly to keep waterways navigable. A dredge is a device for scraping or sucking the seabed, used for dredging. A dredger is a ship or boat equipped with a dredge.

Thanks for viewing. :)

Thanks for commenting on the dredger, Carol. They're not particularly pretty to look at, (more of an industrial machine) but the sunset gave it a more appealing look, I think. :)
