Sand blocks

I couldn't resist capturing these blocks in the sand.

Taken with an E520 with the 25mm Pancake lens, I really like this lens more and more as I use it.

Cheers,

Paul

Re: Sand blocks

Woof, a really well composed shot with an underappreciated but really good lens. But what are they. They seem a deliberate work of art. Surely they din't just wash up.

Re: Sand blocks

I think this is a really good composition something I struggle with once I stray too far from wildlife and flowers.

They looks like sea defences of some sort, either left over from the war or something to try to reduce erosion.

Re: Sand blocks

Thanks for the comments guys, they are sea defences, I photograghed them before but each time I go to the beach I see a new way to capture them, the beach is vast and barren when the tides out but I always take a camera and always find something new to capture.

Cheers,

Paul

Re: Sand blocks

Great leading line. I like they way the blocks go back and forth.

Re: Sand blocks

We have loads of these on the Northumberland coast, but they aren't often so low down on the beach, and I've not seen them with the bricks sticking out either.

I like the way everything leads into the shot,even the footprints.
