Just a question about this picture. By any chance you took this ship in Punta Arenas?

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken along Highway 9 near Punta Arenas, at the southern end of Chile. Just a forgotten ship, being allowed to rust and sink in the Strait of Magellan.
Time
This was late afternoon, I was driving north along Highway 9, having done an afternoon hike out to San Isidro Lighthouse.
Lighting
Just the standard late afternoon lighting, not really to golden hour, but the sun was shining brightly on the water...making for a nice semi-reflective surface.
Equipment
Canon EOS 60D, with EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM lens. Freehand shot.
Inspiration
I had noticed a couple ships sitting low in the water when I first ventured out that morning on my way to hike. On the way back into Punta Arenas, I noticed this ship again. She looked awfully lonely and full of neglect. This lighting was just so, so I pulled over on the side of the road, and snapped a couple shots of her. I'm glad I did, I can only imagine what kind of sea tales she had...sunrises/sunsets she'd seen, storms she'd battled, and families that her catches fed.
Editing
This photo, I used Google Nik with Photoshop to get an older feel for the shot. I utilized Analog EFex Pro 2 for slight edits, and it really made the clouds stand out...much like the clouds used to in old Technicolor Films from the 40's.
In my camera bag
At the time this picture was taken, I carried my Canon EOS 60D, with a Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-56L IS USM attached, and a EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM in standby. Since then, I've upgraded to the Canon EOS 80D, but have kept the lens options the same. I keep the 60D in semi-retirement, just in case I need to use her again.
Feedback
Don't be afraid to pull over at random...be it side of the road, a bridge, a beach, or where ever. Make notes of things you see that you might want to come back to later on. When I started out that morning, I noted the ship in the water, and on my way back...the lighting was just so, and made for a great picture.
