Shoeburyness – arrow to the sea

Today’s photo: A long exposure shot taken near Southend, UK, at Shoeburyness.

This used to be a major military barrack and defensive area, and as a result there are a lot of mysterious and derelict structures out in the sea that make fertile ground for LE photographers.

I liked the obelisk-like nature of this groyne – it looked a bit like a horizontal Cleopatra’s needle pointing to the Netherlands.

Thanks to Mr J. Vulture for tipping me off to the location.  I spent a surprisingly enjoyable couple of days here, dodging unexploded mines, and scoping good locations for these shots.  This one is part of a series – I’ll show the others over the next few weeks.

By the way, this is published simultaneously to here, Flickr, and 500px.
