Caption: Aerial view of waves breaking on a coastal shoreline. The lines of posts seen extending into the sea are groynes, walls erected to prevent the movement of sand along the coast. This movement is known as long-shore drift, and was responsible for the formation of the long peninsula of Spurn Head seen here. Above the green vegetation on the peninsula can be seen the sand banks of the Humber estuary. Spurn Head is located in Humberside on the north east coast of England.
