‘Magnificence’ of island’s shipwrecks graveyard captured

A photographer is paying tribute to the lives misplaced to a small island within the Bristol Channel generally known as a graveyard for shipwrecks.

Tusker Rock, which lies about about two miles (3.2km) west of Ogmore-by-Sea, in Vale of Glamorgan, has claimed dozens of lives over the centuries.

Photographer and artist Peter Britton has at all times been fascinated by the 0.3 mile (500m) lengthy island.

His mission goals to create an art work which stands as a “legacy for the lives misplaced” to the “treacherous” rock by movies and images.
