Jetties and Piers

With so many rivers, lakes and waterways (not to mention such a vast shoreline) there is certainly no shortage of jetties and piers to photograph. Some are steeped in history, still standing from our colonial days. These are usually made of timber; while those that have been rebuilt are usually made of concrete.
