A pile of what appears to be anchor chain fused together was revealed at low tide yesterday. Photographer Christopher Seufert was hiking on Marconi Beach in Wellfleet, MA, when he spotted the large rusted piles at the water's edge.
"The sand around the iron was so full of metal that it was also fused hard into sheets. Most likely they're part of a nearby shipwreck, and they were possibly piled into the hold as ballast."
