Default Please explain sample image contents.

Can anyone explain what this cage is used for in attached image. It is from the Nikon review site for the Nikon7000 review. Want to know if this "cage" is a leftover from some storm that destroyed other parts such as a pier.
Thanks.

That's what it looks like to me. Notice the obvious state of disrepair. The image is from DPReview.com, so I think it's probably somewhere in the UK.

You probably should have posted a link to the picture instead of the photo itself. Some people get upset when you use their copyrighted material without even attribution.

VTphotog,

You are absolutely correct re attribution! I apologize for the goof. At the time I posted the picture I thought it was from Steve's review-not DP Review.com! Thanks brian.
Thanks to TCav and MartinSykes for their responses and video of burning pier.
