Nice view down the beach.

We just had some 'wild ocean', it seems the coastline has been drastically reshaped.

Wow! The water really has created a sand cliff there.

Tanya said...

must get rough to create that bank!

As Hurricane Sandy showed lots of folks in this country - the ocean can pretty much do what it wants and there isn't anything we can do about it. Usually, every year after hurricane season, many Florida beaches look just like this - so millions of dollars worth of sand are trucked in to replenish the beaches because Florida depends heavily on tourism and tourists love beaches. I'll be they do the same there.d

This beach sure has had some pounding JM, Mother Nature can be harsh at times.

Dina said...

The ocean is like a dozen bulldozers when it is agitated.

Sharon said...

Mother nature is a bit of a sculptor.

Halcyon said...

Wow! That's Mother Nature at work.

Yes, we've definitely had many beaches "reshaped" by Hurricane Sandy! Mother Nature is indeed a powerful woman! Terrific capture, JM! Hope all is well with you and your family!!

It almost seems like one of the beaches along the coast near Chennai. Nice!

It is fascinating how the sea has re-sculptured the sand.

This is a good reminder of how powerless we can be against the forces of nature.

A lot of beach reshaping has been going on along the USA's East Coast this week.

Dave said...

Blimey that is some re-shaping then. Would be intresting to do a time-line on it over the course of a season..... over to you for that one...lol
