I believe these are broken links from an anchor chain.

They look like they have been there a long time. I like the colors from the rust. A wonderfully gritty image.

Beautiful clarity and textures captured in this close-up! The links look so fragile as if they would crumble to the touch.

it appears to me that this was a fire pit in which boards with nails, screws, etc were burned. I use to see this at a boat launch where fishermen burnt old boards to stay warm in the winter. Did you take home that new screw in the photo?

@Jerry: I am a firm adherent of the philosophy "leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos." National park or junkyard.
