Caption: Coastal defences. Waves breaking against a groyne at high tide at Happisburgh, Norfolk, UK. The Norfolk area of the English coastline is particularly prone to erosion by the sea, and some areas are eroding at a rate of nine metres a year. Coastal defences, such as this groyne, are used to slow the rate of erosion by absorbing the energy of the waves. Photographed in August 2008.
