|The wreck of a small cargo ship or barge in the abandoned Soviet coal harbour in Colesbukta, Svalbard, on 25th of May, 2013. Colesbukta was abandoned in early 1960s together with Grumant, a nearby mining settlement to which the coal loading port was connected by a narrow-gauge railway. This wreck probably dates back to that time. This time, the tide was lower than ever, and I was able to walk all the way to the wreck and touch it. The structure in the background was part of the conveyor used to transport coal from the onshore storage area to a ship.
