These simple wooden piles are guarding the beaches already for a long time. Nobody knows how old they are, but these breakwaters seem to last a long time.
I have known these all my life, and they always have a strange kind of attraction to many. Specially photographers.
Seen many photos of long exposure and with sunrise or sunset. Not for me, I just was walking with the minimum of gear, maybe one day I will go with the tripod and filters.
Makes me wonder who decided that these wooden stumps, spaced the way they are, would be the best way to control/break the water. Actually, makes me also wonder why there is a difference in heights as it reaches the shore.
It is an old way of doing, effective?. They get shorter landinwards, with sand that comes with wind and water. So dunes are created over a long time.
Wow very cool, loved the breakwater stumps, I can see why others get memorized by them Love all your captures. all were unique, now I want to research the coast line here for stumps I know they have quite a few rock ones and some ugly cement ones Thanks for sharing Peter
We have the ugly ones to. I prefer these. Thanks for the visit
