Grones at Twilight, by Andrew Jones

"The Eastern shoreline of the Bay of Saire is lined at regular intervals with old weathered breakwaters. At the highest tide, this particular breakwater was the only one that stood in the sea for its entire length. The bright surface of the surrounding water helped to accentuate the outline of each of the wooden posts that make up the breakwater. I used a 'Big Stopper', main picture (left), to take a long exposure shot which removed any distracting detail in the water's surface. Luckily the clouds overhead were moving in the same direction as the breakwater was pointing, so they shared the same vanishing point in the image."
