Barrier Gate

Rusting Barrier by Son of the Morning Light  on 500px.com

A derelict anicut designed to keep salty seawater out of the Gin Oya river system, now serves as nothing more than a barrier to river traffic, its gates rusted shut. Shot in Waikkal, on the western coast of Sri Lanka, for Explore Sri Lanka magazine. For the full piece and more photographs go to Waterworld Waikkal.
