Groynes

The shingle on my local beach is pretty mobile, suffering from longshore drift that if left to its own devices would block the river to the east.  To stop this there are wooden groynes built into the beach, repeating walls aimed at stopping the movement of all the stones.  This is a close-up of one of the huge timbers installed there, the harsh seas and winds wear away the wood and leave it beautifully smoothed.

These objects are a thing that I photograph all the time because they are so close to my house, so sort of another photographic addiction to add to my admissions….
