Photographer's Note

Picture of a section of the sea defences at the East Yorkshire town of Hornsea.
This section of the east Yorkshire coast is primarily made up of soft clay and each year large portions of the coastline, north and south of Hornsea, disappear into the sea - often several meters a year.

The sea defences and promenade have recently been upgraded using some strikingly modern designs for a traditional British seaside town - I will post some pics.

The tall sculpture at the end of the wall marks the finish of the 344km Trans Pennine Trail. This is a newly opened network of paths and trails for walkers and cyclists, stretching coast to coast from Southport on the west coast of England.

As for the image, I have just converted to B&W and increased contrast. I then ran it through neat image to get rid if some noise in the sky.
