WEATHERED WOODEN GROYNE POSTS AT CROW POINT BEACH DEVON
Old weathered wooden posts with exposed rusty nails stand guard like sentinels on the beach near Crow Point & Braunton Burrows sand dune system in North Devon, SW England, UK. Originally part of groynes to prevent coastal erosion they have been ravaged by the coastal climate and sculpted into fascinating shapes and colours. The Rivers Taw and Torridge estuaries meet here. Consequently the area is an important UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere and hosts many species of wildlife some quite rare. The military use the immense sand dune system and huge expanse of beach for training exercises. Taken in July, one summer.
