The tides can be very strong on the East coast and can buckle the steps badly. So at the end of the summer season they are raised from the cliff and lay horizontally until needed again next year. How do you take an interesting photo of a ladder? Its challenging believe me.
However the sun helps as that creates some shadows.
I have increased the contrast significantly to emphasis them.
Many thanks for click and comments yesterday and particularly to Keith v for his User Award - much appreciated
Enjoy your weekend everyone
