On September 1 1968, Cabo de Santa Maria, a Spanish cargo boat travelling from Brazil, shipwrecked a few miles from the island capital Sal Rei on Boa Vista, Cape Verde. The beach where it is wrecked is named after the ship. After over 40 years of intense sun and the relentless pounding by the wind and waves, the entire eroding structure of the ship will soon collapse into the sea. The photographer noted, “It is an interesting spot, with dunes on the beach, waves in the sea, wind in the air. The only problem is that there is no road to get there. You have to take a jeep, traveling through treacherous sands and big stones that make the car jump.
