...it stops the boulders and pebbles on this beach being flung beyond this wall which is about five foot high as I recall. On South Uist in the Western Isles, Scotland.
Awesome sky Dougie, really has a rather dramatic effect with
those blunders taking centre stage

Looks to be a substantial deterrent, Dougie, allowing you to just peep over the defences at the view beyond, and what a view with the cloud cover hovering over the distant mountains.
Wonderful detail at every level from a small aperture.
And the B and W presentation does add character.
Storm breaker Dougie !!!
This is a wonderful composition Dougie, certainly not the norm, but so wonderfully observed. The monochrome certainly enhanced the overall scene quite magnificently
And how different it would be in colour.
My inclination would lean towards a darker sky and a trim at the bottom.
It would be on my list for a big print.
The colour version is available HERE
I have become quite a connoisseur of regional dry stone walling techniques over the years, this is intriguing. It does appear to be really a long pile of boulders without any apparent structure - but the rocks big enough are to stay in place. (Derbyshire does this with much smaller stones and the walls collapse if anyone so much as leans against them!).
Lovely textures and surfaces. I wonder who put the pebbles there?
The monochrome really emphasises the textures and differentiates between them.
Moira probably the sea, as there are mounds and mounds of similar and larger pebbles of similar and larger size within a few feet of the wall. The whole beach along here is comprised of pebbles. Some of these beaches are very noisy as the tide thunders in and the pebbles grind against each other.
You could lean against this wall and never budge it.
A great shot and a wonderful composition.
This reminds me of home. We have large rocks in front of our place for the same reason. But we still have to remove small rocks and debris when we get home in the Spring. Never thought of taking a shot of them in mono. But this looks great and love those clouds.......Sandy
a history lesson in mono...just like when I was a wee wain.
Not your classic view of those hills Dougie, certainly looks a strong defence against the wind and seas
The old boys
Are all leaving
Leaving one by one
Where young birds go flying
Spread your wings and run
But over the fields
By the drystone walls
An eagle will come no more

They must have had such a picture in their heads when they wrote this song. Beautiful detail in that wall,
Excellent capture, love the sky and pov
I really like the contrast in texture between the rocks and the cloud Dougie.
Simply, wonderful mono!
Lovely contrasts in this B&W, Dougie!
Grrrr...missed this one too !!
Impressive shot !!.....lovely strong F/G, & beautiful sky !!!!
