Decomposition, West Pier

There was a massive storm last winter and I walked down to the beach the morning after to see what the sea had brought out. But it was all clean and tidy, looking like someone had gone over the beach with a massive broom. Only a large piece of driftwood remained on the beach just near the old West Pier, which burnt down a few years back and is now left to decompose in the sea. It left me with an interesting composition of the decomposition.

I fear the best part of the image will be gone soon though, The West Pier. One of the most interesting man made landmarks in the country. Soon to be demolished and removed to erect a brand new 162 metre high tower to loom over our city with its glossy steel and glass, The i360.
