This is a startling photo with its aura of a wasteland. It's a beach, isn't it? Are those posts sticking up from the sand?

Hi, thanks for your comment!
Yes, it is a beach just south of Dover in southeast England. I took this photo in the late afternoon at low tide.
I ve been at this beach before at high tide and never realised that these posts were hidden underneath.!

What do you suppose they were for? They can't be for anything now other than stubbing one's toe on. Maybe there was once a pier there.

This stretch of coastline is very exposed to the weather elements, and when i asked a local about the posts he said they are there to stop the sand shifting from one part of the beach to the next, so to keep the coast line even.

Have a look at this one!!:



In the background the tower in the middle is a nuclear power plant...so i guess you are right the whole area has that wasteland feeling..specially this time of the year..

It makes a great, other-worldly photo, and yet it's sort of sad, isn't it? To keep the beach from its natural shifts, something very unnatural was done and, in the process, the landscape was scarred. Very strange.

Must be unique...

A beach without peers.



(Actually, I thought the posts might be remnants from WWII
enplacements to thwart landing craft).
