Arniston is a small seaside settlement on the coast of the Overberg region of South Africa, close to Cape Agulhas, the

southernmost tip of Africa. There is so much to photograph in the area. Beautiful seascapes, caves and wrecks. 

In May 1815, a British East India shipArniston, was rounding the Cape in convoy on a journey to repatriate wounded English soldiers from Ceylon. The ship lacked a chronometer – an expensive instrument at the time – and consequently had to rely on other ships in the fleet to calculate the longitude of the group. After being separated from the convoy in heavy seas, the captain of Arniston was obliged to rely solely on dead reckoning to navigate. Thinking incorrectly that he was 100 miles (160 km) west of the Cape of Good Hope, the master steered north for St Helena and ran the ship onto the rocks at Waenhuiskrans. Only six of the 378 people on board survived the wrecking.
