This thumbnail and the north view shows this rather large vessel underwater with an oil slick. The east view shows it still afloat.

You can see it still floating in the East view!

It was the "Cariddi II" a train ferry sold in 1992 to Province of Messina, used as floating museum.

With the fact that it is there in one view and sunk in another this goes on my all time top ten favorites. Good job!
