This photo was taken from the Cape St Lucia lighthouse.
The vessel is the Jolly Rubino. It ran aground in Sep 2002. It was about 20 miles off RichardsBay when a fire started on board . The crew were airlifted, and the vessel continued to float - still alight - for a couple of days, before settling on a sand bank in the surf north of the St Lucia lighthouse.
