In Focus has an interesting series of photos of the salvaging and scrapping of a Maltese-registered cargo ship known as the TK Bremen which ran aground near a beach in Brittany, France.

The location of the final resting place of the ship proved to be particularly tricky during scrapping because crews had to be careful not to mess up the dunes nearby which were part of a nature reserve. But alas, they did it, and the TK Bremen is no more.
