“Gabionage” describes the way sea defences are constructed by filling metal cages with pebbles or other rocky materials, and stacking the cages to create a sea wall. At Chesil Cove on the Island of Portland, Dorset, UK, on the Jurassic Coast, the town is protected from incursions of rough seas by a bank of stacked gabions as well as a reinforced concrete sea wall.
In these pictures I have had a bit of fun by digitally altering photographs of the gabions to produce colourful abstract images.
