It remains something of a mystery why the Koula F or Greek Ship was grounded off the coast of Iran near Kish Island.

Since it ran aground in 1966, and after unsuccessful attempts to tow it away, the 132 meter (433 ft) cargo ship has remained a popular photography attraction known for beautiful sunsets.

From romantic, to creative, to somewhat creepy, these images from the photographers of Aminus3 are a great representation of the many moods of this distinct landmark.
