Take a Breaker 2

By pamelajean
Concluding my rust series.

These were taken at sunset on Hayling beach.
The metal rings and bolts have obviously been eroded by the sea water, and the rust has run down the posts.

I used to call them breakers but discovered they are called revetments, slatted and angled low wooden walls parallel to the beach to absorb the energy of incoming water. So this is coastal management, a sea-defence system, a beach-protecting structure. Just goes to show, you're never too old to learn !

I uploaded a version of this in 2008.

Many thanks to those folk who responded to my previous post of Swansea Bridge. Your interest is appreciated.

I love the golden tones obviously, but also the repeating patterns and the odd sizes of the vertical poles - especially 4th from the right WinkWinkWink

A very strong composition with good depth, with the evening sunlight picking out the rustiness and colours very well 👍 Something new I've learnt too, I'd have called them breakers! 😁
