Floodbank at St-Martin, Carribeans.
Protection against big waves. Like tsunamies I suppose or hurricanes.

Photo manipulation on the water and the sky. I made the sky look as if it was northern lights.
And on the water, semi-transparency.

    That’s amazing, how smooth the rocks are. This is one of the most interesting rock photos I’ve seen.

  • Thanks!
    By the way, they are smooth because it appears to be rocks of concrete. They look like they were molded in that form then, they built floodbanks with them.
    Take care!
