Good Morning Everyone,
This is the beach at Old Hartley, near to the location of my previous post of the lighthouse.
This tall line made a strong feature leading out to sea.
These groynes obviously had a purpose, though I'm not sure what it was, as the beach is very rocky, here. Whatever, one of them has disappeared ... a missing link! I wonder if it was as a result of the bad storms that we had earlier in the year!
Have a great w/e,

une photo intéressante, avec de bons effets de lumière et de reflets sur les surfaces d'eau.
Bonne perspective amenée par les pieux.

love these old wooden groynes, they have a romantic and wonderfully salty seascape arty feel about them. All the more so when covered in seaweed and green slime like seen here. They are one of my favourite subjects and I do actively seek them out as they are slowly being replaced by concrete defences. Irresistible!
Enjoy a peaceful weekend - B.

Bonjour, chère Bev,
Très jolie mise en image de la mer et de ses abords.
Une image contemplative du meilleur effet.
Très bonne journée.

Good evening Beverly,
Title well chosen.
The rough terrain and sea, its view led by those groynes-poles, added scale and DOF.
Oddly enough, inspite of the grey sky, found a spot with a nice reflaction on those small puddles, nice mingling with green algea's.

Interesting structure, and I too would wonder what purpose they could serve! I could spend time guessing, but I reckon I would be wrong :) You used them perfectly to create a very strong leading line down to the sea and the bright vivid green of the seaweed covered rocks is really appealing too. Very nicely done, a nice moody and intriguing shot.
All the best

Lovely scenery with the steel grey of the sea against the clouds making a fascinating backdrop. The green of the foreground with the small pools of water is pretty i itself and makes a very pleasing foreground.
The purpose of the groynes...? Obviously to provide great leads and an interesting subject for photo enthusiasts :-).
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your Sunday.

It looks very cold and unfriendly here. I check the date and see that this picture was taken about a year ago! We were in Brittany about this time and it was indeed a very cold spring. An interesting picture with very dark colours. Whatever these poles are for, they provide a very fine composition here.

Yes. That's the North Sea all right: grey and cold! Your photograph is very evocative and has loads of chilly atmosphere. Your work on the sky has paid off well and the colours are suitably muted and cool. (Not sure about the frame!)

I really didn't want to be there in the dead of winter :)
the place seems cold,also because of the colours...
the twin-poles along give depth in composition,
and why one of them has disappeared ?
You may well ask!
thanks for sharing,

Bev, an exciting scenery by the sea..so nice to discover while taking a walk there..
the missing link is the history behind this place!!
a lovely point of view and a beautiful composition!

mi piace questa tua curiosa e originale composizione, molto diversa dalle foto che si trovano su questo sito.
La luce non ti ha aiutato, ma trovo che sia ottima in questo caso, crea una certa drammaticità che si abbina bene al soggetto.

I think it was a support of an old pier
Very good lights balance exposure of the clouds
Nice deep foreground

amazing wild nature here. Beach like after the storm. Good composition. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.

Good composition with the goynes being the main subject, placed well in a diagonal way
Like the gloomy color contrast and the puddles and reflects
A well presented wild landscape that I enjoy watching

a well composed shot with the nearest groyne perfectly placed. Their silhouette gives dof. This overcast day makes me feel quite shivery as today here in SW Scotland is similar. But this is so typical of a northern England shoreline, most often than not. I like all the little details too, the bladderwrack (and the way seaweed hangs on the groyne's crossbars)and the green slimy, slipperyness.
