Long Beach, Long Island, New York
Long Beach in Long Island, New York on a sunny August day. A crowd of beachgoers enjoys the sun or plays and swims in the ocean. Others sit along the top of long wooden groins, reading newspapers or chatting. The sign tucked into the groin reads "Danger". Groins run perpendicular to the ocean and contribute to building up beach material on their downdrift sides. They have to be built in rows as their updrift sides lose beach material - which may be why the ocean reaches further inland in the forefront of the picture.
