Snapshot: Titanic's Ghostly Bow

This photo was taken in 1988 and shows the bow of the ill-fated Titanic emerging from the murky deep - like a ghost ship coming out of the fog. Despite being underwater since 1912, it retains the grace and elegance that made Titanic a truly beautiful ship to behold.

Nevertheless, I feel that it sets the perfect mood on this Halloween Eve. The rusticles hang off the ship like iron tears that have never fallen. Crying for the life Titanic never had perhaps? Crying for all those lost in the sinking?

Probably not...but it's still an awesome (and creepy) photo to show for Halloween.
