This is the Wreck of the Peter Iredale near Astoria, Oregon. Many ships and crew were lost trying to go in or out of the Columbia River at Astoria, the Peter Iredale being one of them. Here is a photo of the Peter Iredale from Wikipedia taken some time around 1900.

Peter Iredale was a four-masted steel barque that ran ashore October 25, 1906, on the Oregon coast en route to the Columbia River.

The caption for the image is:

The image is from the November 2023 Julia Anna Gosporadou workshop on the Oregon Coast. It was a 2 second exposure under rainy and stormy conditions. The 2 second exposure allowed for seeing the motion of the waves.
