Nevil Shute comes to mind. Just needs Gregory Peck and Ava Gardener
blackdog: Is that "The Beach"? I didn't know it was a film - I have read the book.
On the Beach. They did a remake of the film I think but the original is one most people remember.

It is Shute's most depressing book.
blackdog: Yes, I found it a very awkward read - apocalyptic but it a very niave way, knowing what we know now. Strangely enough the painting I have at the bottom of the page is in part inspired by the book.

Certainly some drama here. Looks like D-day beach defences.
blackdog: They are wooden break waters to prevent the erosion of the beach. The rip here is phenomenal - what I am standing on is a flood defence for the nearby town. At the end beyond the tower there used to be a village called Slaughden which was "lost to the sea" in the early 20thC.
What are the structures on the left?

I like this photo with its vertical and horizontal lines very much - abd its 'dräuendem'/threatening sky!

This could be Droitwich, if it were not for the sea, Mike. Those aerial masts and that brooding cloud.
A fine image Mike, is this along the Suffolk coast some where?

Ah the 'ness at Orford.
Taken, it seems, from the far end of Aldeburgh .. The wireless masts, do, I believe, still transmit the BBC world service.
i haven't seen wooden breakwaters before Mike but the dune grass is doing well... the towers are five times taller than the lighthouse...
they may have well have put wind turbines on them....petersmile
