The story behind this image

Sticking out of the sand like a row of rotten teeth, these old wooden groynes on the beach at Llanfairfechan on the North Wales coast made for a great foreground feature in my Llanfairfechan timelapse #8 video, slowing being submerged by the incoming tide.

I chose this frame to present as single image when the tide was halfway in, making for a great patchwork of water and sand on the undulating shoreline.
