One of the many lines of posts that appear and disappear with the tide at Mersea Island, Essex.
Rather than go for the shot of the posts going out to sea, I decided to show them from the sea heading towards the beach.
In the background you can see the cliffs these posts were meant to protect from the erosion by the sea. However you can also see a couple of large trees that have fallen onto the beach from the cliffs.
The posts are the remains of bushwood fences that were installed on the mudflats in 1989 and are referred to as Polders in a tourist leaflet I picked up on the day.
Converted to mono in photoshop using channel mixer and then played around with the dodge/burn tools.
