Wow! Thanks for the incredible votes and positive comments. It's a thrill to win blue and have two shots on the home page at the same time!

There was a time when bad weather would keep me indoors, but not any more!

The structures in the picture are part of a huge 3-pronged breakwater designed to help prevent coastal erosion and longshore drift.

Thanks again

Congrats on a great shot.
Thanks for the notes. I was googling the location and found that they're call "groynes". From Google, looks like a scenic place with cool places to take photos.

Congrats on the ribbon, such a powerful image. Are these used to break up waves at a bay?

These are very cool and the tones are wonderful. Love the drama of the sky, too. One of my favorites in the challenge. Voted earlier.
