While slatted fences help limit the movement and loss of sand from the dunes during storms, alternative longer term methods include planting sturdy, salt-tolerant, fast growing grasses, such as American beachgrass, as seen recently planted to each side.

I do love these fences. This was an earlier image, and earlier fence, taken at the same location:

I recognised the functionality of these fences. Similar systems are now used in the Outer Hebrides to prevent the sea of taking more and more land. Congrats on your TT finish.

I can only laugh noticing this reminds me of another 10 of mine in the previous path challenge that happened to be my favorite. No wonder I had allotted this one a 10 at first glance. Not as good as the path photo but great design. Would have liked more light and shadow variations or something to create a bit of tension

Neat photo. I hope you'll say more about the title in your comments. I am trying to ascertain the function of this fence.

Back to add: my pick for red in this challenge.
