Along the beautiful sandy beaches of St. Augustine, Florida, these dune fence looked weathered and worn by sea mist, yet stoutly leaned into their role.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Almost looks like snow, great image Phil.

  • thanks jeff,
    and they’re used for a similar reason to snow fences i.e. to slow down dune erosion mostly from wind
